Sky Sports understands that West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United are interested in signing James Troisi from Atalanta.
The Australian midfielder joined Atalanta last summer from Turkish side Kayserispor, having previously spent time with Newcastle United as a youth player.
He has established himself as a key member of the Serie A club's squad, but could now be heading elsewhere after attracting interest from the Premier League.
West Brom and West Ham are thought to have been keeping tabs on his progress, and will be mulling over whether to step up their interest.
The Baggies have enjoyed an impressive season and remain in the top half despite a run of four matches without a win, while West Ham are comfortably placed seven points above the relegation zone.
