Parma are in negotiations with Juventus for defender Jean Alain Boumsong.

The Frenchman has rejected offers from Shakhtar Donetsk, Benfica and Lyon this month, but is open to the prospect of staying in Italy with Parma.

Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi knows he will have to cough up a fee for Boumsong, who is reluctant to accept a loan agreement.
