Udinese have joined a long queue of clubs interested in signing Cesena revelation Marco Parolo.
The 26-year-old has just completed his first campaign in Serie A where he impressed onlookers and Italy boss Cesare Prandelli, who handed him an Azzurri cap.
Cesena took total control of his contract last month when they signed Chievo's half in the player, but they are expected to still move him on.
Fiorentina, Palermo and Lazio have shown an interest in the midfielder, but Udinese are apparently very keen too.
It is being claimed that Parolo could move to the Champions League qualifiers if the two clubs can agree a deal for Antonio Candreva.
The creative midfielder, who has spent the past season on loan at Parma, has returned to the Stadio Friuli outfit.
Cesena believe that he could be a good addition to a squad which now also contains Adrian Mutu after his switch from Fiorentina.
