Parma are reported as having reached agreement with Sampdoria to take full ownership of Jonathan Biabiany.
The two clubs were seen as struggling to conclude negotiations over the Frenchman’s co-ownership status, with it believed that the only agreement they had reached was to both sell their halves in him to interested parties.
However, reports are that the Ducali have managed to agree a deal to take full ownership of the 26-year-old and that official confirmation is due shortly.
It is understood that Parma will then evaluate offers on the table for Biabiany, which reportedly include interest from former side Inter.
Clubs have until 7pm Italian time today to resolve any outstanding co-ownership deals or risk going to blind auction.
