Fiorentina hope to sort a deal with Parma for goalkeeper Sebastien Frey soon.
Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle says the club will do everything in their powers to keep on-loan trio Sebastien Frey, Christian Brocchi and Manuel Pasqual at the club next season.
All three have been integral parts of Viola's squad this term having joined on season-long loans from Parma, Milan and Arezzo respectively.
The club are hopeful all three will stay, but aim to sort out a deal for goalkeeper Frey soon.
Frey is currently recovering from a season-ending injury suffered in January and talks between Fiorentina and Parma are going well.
"Negotiations between us and Fiorentina are getting closer," said Parma general director Oreste Cinquini.
However, UEFA Champions League semi-finalists Milan are also thought to be interested in the French goalkeeper and could make a move for him after some poor performances from Brazilian Dida.
"Personally, I think he will stay in Florence," he added. "The negotiations are continuing but there is also a third team involved - Milan.
"At this moment, they are having problems with Dida."
