Parma sports chief Gabriele Zampagna admits they're battling to keep Italy U21 stars Luca Cigarini and Daniele Dessena.

"They're both outstanding young players," said Zampagna, "who are interesting many teams. But we won't consider selling them this month."

He added: "We're not interested in Arturo Lupoli because we have Igor Budan. We haven't spoken to Fiorentina about him."
