Parma are closing in on Auxerre defender Willy Boly and Issam El Adoua of Vitoria Guimaraes.
The Ducali have long been interested in former French Under-19 international Boly, who is now 22 years old.
His current contract expires in June 2014, so La Gazzetta dello Sport claim he’s ready to leave for a minimal fee.
Another Parma target in defence is El Adoua, who can play either at the back or as a defensive midfielder for Portuguese club Vitoria Guimaraes.
The 26-year-old is a Moroccan international thought to be worth around €1.8m.
