Yohan Benalouane has already begun training with new club Atalanta ahead of his Parma transfer.
The French-Tunisian centre-back was training with the Orobici in their final session of 2013.
His loan move cannot be made official until the January transfer window opens on January 2.
Meanwhile, forward Guido Marilungo is expected to leave Atalanta mid-season to find more playing time elsewhere.
Among the clubs interested in the Italy Under-21 international are Catania and several Serie B sides.
