Parma talks for Lodi

Parma are reportedly close to bringing in Catania creative midfielder Francesco Lodi.

The ex-Genoa man is seen as the ideal replacement for Marco Parolo, who was sold to Lazio this summer.

Lodi is most famous as a free kick and penalty specialist, but also pulls the midfield strings for his teams.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Parma are close to agreeing terms with Catania for the 30-year-old.
