Italy's football federation will ask for Euro 2020 to be postponed over the coronavirus outbreak so they can complete the Serie A season.
"We will propose to UEFA the delay of the European Championships," Gabriele Gravina, president of the Italian Football Federation told the SportMediaset television channel.
"We will try to get to the end of this [domestic] championship because it is fairer and more correct after the many investments and sacrifices of our clubs." Top-flight football across Europe has ground to a halt as a result of the spread of the coronavirus, with national and continental club competitions suspended or postponed.
The Premier League and EFL have postponed all fixtures until April 4 and 3 respectively at the earliest.
Representatives of European clubs and leagues and the players will join national federations on an emergency video-conference call organised by UEFA on Tuesday.
Discussions will include Euro 2020 which is due to take place in 12 European countries, including Italy, from 12 June to 12 July.
The postponement of football's Euro 2020 Championship may already have been decided as it emerges UEFA last week cancelled its hotel bookings in Copenhagen, one of the host cities.
The CPH Hotel told REUTERS over the phone that UEFA had booked 80 of its 102 rooms but cancelled them a little over a week ago. The Marienlyst Strandhotel, where the Danish team usually bases itself, said in an email that UEFA had cancelled the rooms booked on behalf of the Danish side.
UEFA is meeting with its member federations on Tuesday, where a postponement of Euro 2020 to 2021 is expected to be announced following the widespread suspension of Europe's domestic leagues due to the coronavirus
