Watford have tested the water with a couple of bids, which were rejected, and Alex have now entered the bidding.
The Robins are still hopeful of agreeing a new deal with Parkin, which has prompted the County Ground club to snub offers from the Championship teams.
Crewe only just staved off the threat of relegation from The Championship, with the loss of Dean Ashton having a huge impact on their post-Christmas efforts.
