QPR attacker Adel Taarabt has been offered a possible exit from the club, report Italian website GianlucadiMarzio.com.
Yet despite his intention to play in Serie A reported by The Mail last month, he is unconvinced over his latest offer.
Di Marzio reports that Italian club Parma are working on putting together a deal to sign to Moroccan, who spent time on loan at AC Milan last season.
Taarabt is said to be taking some persuading, and it's easy to see why.
He is holding back, the report claims, because of Parma's poor position in Serie A. They have nine points from 18 games and are adrift in the relegation zone, even if they are level on points with Cesena.
They are seven points away from 16th placed Cagliari, and if it is a permanent move which is on offer, Taarabt is right to wonder what the future may hold.
Relegation would present a decision for him to make in the summer, and it certainly would not be as straightforward a challenge as he enjoyed last season with AC Milan when he was afforded plenty of possession, and allowed to let his creative talents flourish.
He is learning at QPR that a survival battle does not bring out the best in him, and he is likely to hold out for alternative offers.
The report adds that Parma are still trying to persuade him, and while he is getting very little football at QPR, it's easy to say especially if it is a loan switch on offer, he has very little to lose by going to play regularly in a top flight league, where he can aim to attract the attentions of a bigger side.
