Steve Von Bergen is close to joining Palermo from Genoa in a swap deal which will also involve Alexandros Tzorvas.
The two clubs have been in discussions regarding the duo and an agreement has apparently been reached.
Von Bergen, 29, is a central defender who only moved to the port outfit in the summer after two seasons in Italy with Cesena.
Tzorvas, meanwhile, joined Palermo last summer from Panathinaikos as a replacement for goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.
The Greek, however, eventually lost his place in the first team after a number of problematic displays.
