Palermo snap up young talent

Palermo have hinted at deals to snap up Carlos Labrin and Adam Simon for next season as well as Eran Zahavi.

“Even if some players do leave, we have already got others,” President Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Sportiva.

“Along with Zahavi, we will bring in a Chilean and a Hungarian. To beat the big clubs on the market, you have to find talented youngsters who turn out to be important investments.”

Although Zamparini only named Hapoel Tel Aviv attacking midfielder Zahavi, the Italian media claim they know the other two figures.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Chilean is defender Carlos Labrin of club side Deportivo Huachipato.

The 21-year-old is a centre-back who can also play at right-back. He captained Chile's team in the Under-20 World Cup in 2009 and received a senior call-up in August 2010.

Adam Simon of Haladas is a 20-year-old Hungarian midfielder – the twin brother of Liverpool's Andreas Simon.
