Palermo have a deal with Juventus for Paulo Dybala, so are turning their attention to Boca’s Jonathan Calleri.
The €40m transfer between cash, bonuses and players in exchange will be completed next week when Dybala has a medical in Turin.
Now the Sicilians must find a replacement and Sky Sport Italia are confident the prime target is Boca Juniors forward Calleri.
The 21-year-old has scored 13 goals in 37 competitive games this season, also providing six assists.
According to reports, Palermo have so far offered €8m, but Boca are holding out for €12m.
Monaco are also interested in the Argentine talent.
