Officials from Inter are eager to sit down and thrash out a deal with the highly-rated Udinese star but Lescovich does not want to reveal too much to the media on the subject.
He told Radio Cooperativa: "I prefer to be careful and not say too much at this time because I don't want to talk about things that aren't ready yet.
"We have had some important approaches, but Inter would be the most interesting but they haven't made an official offer yet.
"Everything is going in the right direction and hopefully we are going to have a meeting with them in March.
"Nothing is being rushed because Udinese want to hang onto him until June and they still want him while they're in the Uefa Cup.
"I think he will stay until June but we need to meet in March to sign the pre-contract."
Pizarro has allegedly become the sole obsession of Inter president Massimo Moratti but he faces stiff competition from their bitter rivals the Rossoneri.
Lescovich confirmed: "Milan is also interested in the player but it's all about casting the first stone about the amount of money involved.
"None of the clubs want to make the first offer so we agents have to do all the dirty work.
"We have to try and put the parts together because the presidents of the clubs don't want to be the first to offer because this makes the prices change."
The asking price for the South American star is thought to be in the region of £10-12 million and according to reports in Italy, Spanish sides Deportivo La Coruna, Real Betis and Celta Vigo are all firm admirers of Pizarro's attacking flair and Newcastle United are also rumoured to be fans of the player.
