Parma push for Kucka and Benito

Parma are said to be in talks with Juraj Kucka and Alessandro Matri, while laying the groundwork for Young Boys winger Loris Benito.

The Ducali are proving active on the transfer market in January, trying to reinforce a squad that is comfortably mid-table.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Ducali have asked Turkish club Trabzonspor for Kucka.

The 31-year-old Slovakia international is no stranger to Serie A, playing for Genoa and then Milan from 2011 to 2017.

It’s reported he has been offered a three-year contract at the Stadio Tardini.

He’s not the only potential addition in January, as La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests Sassuolo veteran forward Matri is in negotiations.

Matri would replace Fabio Ceravolo, who is considering a return to Benevento.

Meanwhile, there are plans afoot for changes in June, as Sky Sport Italia maintain Parma are targeting Young Boys left-sided winger Benito, whose contract with the Swiss outfit will expire at the end of the season.
