The current financial problems at his club, have seem Frey's future called into question.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea, have shown strong interest in the past - but Parma were always adamant they wanted to keep him.
However, Parma's parent company Parmalat are in dire financial straits and they could be forced to sell their prized assets.
Hidetoshi Nakata has already left for Bologna, and now Adriano and Frey are said to be on the shopping lists of a host of clubs.
Chelsea have since attempted to land Czech star Petr Cech, although that deal seems unlikely at this stage.
Reports in Italy suggested Arsenal had now moved to the front of the queue for Frey and sources close to the player have confirmed to skysports.com that talks with both will happen in the next week - although not necessarily to conclude an immediate transfer.
The player himself has admitted that England would be a good move for him, but he is concentrating on Parma matters.
"The English championship is fascinating, with a lot of great teams like here," he said.
"But now I do not want to think about this, am thinking to the end of this season."
It remains to be seen how talks with both English clubs go and whether they want to push forward with a deal.
