Palermo waiting for Cassani offers

Palermo seem willing to sell Mattia Cassani and Cesare Bovo – but only if the right offers are made.

Both defenders have been associated with moves away from Sicily, but it appears that nobody has tabled a bid so far.

"Perhaps Cassani is fed up of Palermo, the same may also be said for Bovo, but in order to sell I need offers first," President Maurizio Zamparini noted.

Cassani, a 27-year-old right-back, was linked with Juventus but they are now close to signing Stephan Lichtsteiner from Lazio instead.

The Italian international has also been paired with Inter as a replacement for Douglas Maicon should he be sold.

Bovo, meanwhile, is a centre-back who is understood to be a possible target for Genoa and Roma.
