Parma's financial worries have increased after it was revealed that the club have failed to pay taxes to the sum of é¼320 million from 1992.
The Gialloblu are already in dire financial straits after the collapse of their owners Parmalat, with Parma likely to be forced to sell a number of their top stars to keep the club in business.
The financial crisis which has engulfed the Ennio Tardini outfit lead to the resignation of Parma president Stefano Tanzi, with Enrico Bondi taking over.
The new revelations regard earnings from players transfers and television revenue which have not been declared.
The club may face an investigation into the failure to pay the taxes and the news is a further blow to the new owners, who have been told the club will be sold in the summer.
Meanwhile, Parma have unveiled new signing Marco Amelia from Lecce.
The Italian Under-21 international has been drafted in as understudy to Sebastien Frey in a swap deal, with Vincenzo Sicignano going the other way.
