Parma are looking for defensive reinforcements and options include Alexis Rolin, Gabriel Heinze and Aleandro Rosi.
The Ducali are targeting some fresh legs at the back, which is why 34-year-old Roma outcast Heinze is falling down the rankings.
Rosi has also been told he has no future at the Giallorossi this season, but has so far failed to agree terms with Parma.
The most likely candidate is 22-year-old Rolin, who has impressed at Uruguayan side Nacional.
It is reported by TMW that Rolin could be snapped up in a co-ownership deal with Inter, so he can get some Serie A experience at the Tardini.
