Parma close to double swoop

Parma boss Roberto Donadoni is on the verge of being handed two new players, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Donadoni recently replaced Franco Colomba at the Stadio Tardini and he’s asked the club for reinforcements.

After doing a deal with Inter for Jonathan, more signings could be imminent for the former Italian national boss.

Parma are understood to be close to doing a deal with Roma for 22-year-old striker Stefano Okaka.

The ex-Italian Under-21 international, who hasn’t played this season, has previously been loaned to Modena, Brescia, Fulham and Bari.

Meanwhile, Chievo Verona defender Francesco Acerbi is also understood to be on the verge of moving to the mid-table outfit.

Parma are joint-tenth in the standings – seven points above the relegation zone.
