Reports emanating from Italy are linking Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton with a trio of Parma's top players.
With Rafa Benitez looking likely to bring in a central defender in the summer, the name of Daniele Bonera has again resurfaced.
Liverpool were linked with a é¼6 million move for the defender in January and the early signs are that a close-season bid could be forthcoming.
At the start of the campaign Bonera was the subject of an approach from the European champions but a deal failed to materialise.
Everton too are likely to be busy in the summer and the latest reports from the continent are linking them with Parma midfielders Vincenzo Grella and Mark Bresciano.
It is believed both players are currently being monitored, with Everton boss David Moyes weighing up whether to lodge a firm offer.
