There are reports Edy Reja and Pasquale Marino are in the frame should Palermo sack Gian Piero Gasperini.
The Sicilians have picked up one point from their last five games and there are reports President Maurizio Zamparini is considering his options.
Initial candidates for the role include former Lazio boss Reja and ex-Genoa Coach Marino.
Gasperini is already Palermo’s second tactician of the campaign, as Giuseppe Sannino was sacked after just three rounds.
