In-form Cesena midfielder Marco Parolo has revealed that Palermo wanted him in January, but ideally he'd like to play for Milan.
The 26-year-old has scored against Juventus and Sampdoria in recent weeks, and is an outside bet for a place in the next Italy squad.
Asked if Palermo were interested in his signature, Parolo said: "Yes, it's true, but there was never anything concrete.
"I'll stay at Cesena until June, then we'll see."
Pressed on who he would like to join, he replied: "I've always been a Milan fans. Playing for the red and black club would be my dream."
