Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has called on Napoli and Roma to make him a good offer for star midfielder Josip Ilicic.
The Solvenia international enjoyed a fine season last term, scoring 10 goals in 31 games, but it was not enough to save the Sicilian club from relegation to Serie B.
And Slovenia international Ilicic is set to leave in the off-season, but Zamparini warned that he will only consider realistic offers.
“Everyone knows that Ilicic is available,” he told Ita Sport Press.
“Napoli and Roma if you are interested knock on my door.
“Many think that Palermo went to Serie B and will give away their players. I can assure you, however, that will not be so.
“They have to pay the correct value of his price-tag. If not, our top players will still be with us even in Serie B.”
Reports have also linked head coach Giuseppe Sannino with a move to Genoa but Zamparini, who has overseen 28 managerial changes in 11 years at the club, is confident the 56-year-old will remain at the Renzo Barbera next term.
“Our coach is Sannino for Serie B and we should not look for another one,” the Palermo president added.
“He owes me before asking me if he wants to go away, so far I am not aware and he is in all respects our coach.”
