The agent of Josip Ilicic has admitted that it would be 'a waste' if the Palermo forward played in Serie B next season.
The Rosanero have endured a torrid campaign so far and are currently languishing in the bottom three.
And the Slovenian striker's representative has conceded that top-flight football is a must for his client come the summer.
“The player has been attracting interest from a number of major clubs,” Amir Ruznic told AsRomaRadio.
“However, I do not want to speak about the market because Palermo have to save themselves [from relegation] and it would be disrespectful.
“All I can tell you is that we will sit down with the President at the end of the season and decide what to do.
“I think Ilicic in Serie B would be a waste.”
