Parma, Fiorentina and Juventus are tracking Hajduk Split centre-back Mario Vuskovic, according to the Corriere dello Sport.
The newspaper suggests an offer worth €3m has been put forward by the Viola, but they face competition from other Serie A sides.
He only recently turned 17 and already has two caps for Croatia at Under-19 level.
Juventus are also believed to be keeping track of the situation, but would send him elsewhere on loan.
