Parma have reportedly asked after Napoli striker Fernando Llorente as well as Inter teenager Sebastiano Esposito to replace Roberto Inglese.
The Ducali need a centre-forward after news Inglese had suffered a serious muscle tear in his thigh during the 2-1 defeat to Juventus.
It means he’ll be out of action for a couple of months, potentially for the rest of the season, so Parma require reinforcements.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport transfer expert Nicolò Schira, they have started negotiations with Napoli for Llorente.
The Spaniard turns 35 next month and only joined Napoli as a free agent on September 2 after his experience with Tottenham Hotspur.
Llorente has made 23 competitive appearances for Napoli this season, scoring four goals, but playing time has dried up significantly since Gennaro Gattuso took over from Carlo Ancelotti.
Another option for Parma is Inter’s 17-year-old hitman Esposito, who would be available on a dry loan to gain regular first team experience.
