Stuttgart left-back Cristian Molinaro will be closely monitored by Palermo for the rest of this season.
Reports suggest that the Sicilian outfit are keen on strengthening in that position despite the fact they already have the talented Federico Balzaretti at their disposal.
Molinaro was associated with Napoli during the January transfer window but no winter switch occurred.
The defender, formerly of Juventus, has settled well in the Bundesliga and is contracted to the side until 2014.
