Parma are closely monitoring Ascoli defender Jonas Porting, hoping to bring the 23-year-old to the Gialloblu during the summer.
The Serie B side could be forced to sell the former Finland Under-21 international, as it requires the necessary funds to partake in Italy second division next season, according to SportItalia.
A figure of approximately €1.8 million would be enough to acquire the services of the centre-back.
Parma finished eighth in the league last season, missing out on a place in Europe for next season.
