Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini reveals Egidio Arevalo Rios has a “personal reason” behind a potential January exit.
The Uruguayan had impressed in early appearances and scored his debut Serie A goal, but has since dropped down the pecking order.
“The player is struggling to find space and I think he has personal problems, as his girlfriend can’t get a permit to stay in Italy,” said Zamparini.
“Will he be going to Bologna in January? He’d form a great midfield partnership with Diego Perez.”
Meanwhile, Rios is not in the Palermo squad for Sunday’s trip to Bologna and a January move is on the cards.
