Palermo are making a decision on whether to target Juventus’ Reto Ziegler or Milan’s Djamel Mesbah before the window closes.
The Rosanero are looking for a new left-back after they decided to sell Italian international Federico Balzaretti to Roma this month.
Palermo director Giorgio Perinetti is set to make contact with both clubs on Thursday before deciding which player to swoop for.
If Ziegler does leave the Italian champions then there is the possibility that the Old Lady will bring in Federico Peluso from Atalanta.
The latter could arrive on loan with an option to buy outright next summer.
