Marseille and AC Milan are both set to make late transfer window offers for Swansea and Leicester target Seydou Doumbia.
The Ivorian striker signed a four-year deal with Roma only 12 months ago, when the Italian club paid CSKA Moscow around £11m to sign him.
However he struggled to adapt to life in Italy and was loaned back to the Russian side during the summer.
He has scored five times in 13 league appearances for his old employers so far this term, but he could yet be on the move once again before the window shuts.
Both Swansea and Leicester are reportedly keen on luring Doumbia to the Premier League as they bid to bolster their frontlines in time for the run-in.
However, now reports in Italy have revealed that they will face firm competition for the 28-year-old's services from within Serie A and France.
Marseille are understood to be lining up a loan offer while Milan could be willing to offer Roma cash to buy him this month – or at least loan him with a view to a permanent move.
