Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini has admitted that Josip Ilicic is '90 per cent' likely to leave the club this summer.
The Slovenia international was one of very few bright sparks for the Sicilian side last season, scoring 10 goals in their relegation campaign.
And the Rosanero owner has conceded that the 25-year-old is more than likely to depart over the summer with other Italian clubs and Bayer Leverkusen potential destinations.
“We will not but dropping the price for Josip to anyone,” he told itasportpress.it. “But it looks very difficult for him to stay.
“I'd say it was 90 per cent that he was going away.
“There are some big Italian teams looking at him, as well as Bayer [Leverkusen].”
