Pizarro was a key figure in helping to bring European football to Stadio Friuli next season but is now set to quit the club.
The South American's future has been an intense topic of debate all season and he was close to joining Lazio in a complicated swap deal last summer.
When that fell through, Pizarro was linked with a switch to Internazionale but the Nerazzurri plumped for Dejan Stankovic during the winter transfer window instead.
Inter are rumoured to still be interested in the midfielder and may test Udinese's resolve during the close season.
Udinese will be reluctant sellers but Pizarro's agent has confirmed the player wants to move on to a bigger stage.
"He has asked to leave Udinese," said Gustavo Ghezzi.
"But the sums of last year are not possible now so let's hope he could join a big club. "We are evaluating the offers.
"David, on the pitch, has a big personality. He would be able to play at Roma, at Inter, at Milan, without any problems."
