Tancredi Palmeri says that Liverpool have approached Palermo with a bid for star midfielder…
Liverpool are set to bid €12m for Palermo’s 25-year-old Slovenian midfielder Josip Ilicic, according to Italian football journalist Tancredi Palmeri.
Palmeri broke the news earlier today via his Twitter account.
Ilicic could be available after Palermo were relegated last season, and the player has far too much ability to be playing in the second tier of Italian football. Palermo didn’t win a single game last term where Ilicic didn’t play, and the Slovenian has scored 25 times since arriving at the club in 2012.
Palmeri also mentioned though that the attacker could be a target for Fiorentina, after the Viola sold Stevan Jovetic to Manchester City.
Liverpool have contacted Palermo and they are ready to bid 12m € for Ilicic. The club would accept, but player wants only Fiorentina
