Palermo's Josip Ilicic open to Inter move, admits agent

The Slovenia international's representative has stated that his client would be interested in a move to a bigger club, but added there has not been any contact as yet
Amir Ruznic, the agent of Palermo star Josip Ilicic, has admitted that the midfielder would be open to a move to Inter if the Giuseppe Meazza outfit made an approach.

A number of recent reports suggest that the Coppa Italia holders are considering making a move for the Slovenia international in the January transfer window and Ilicic appears to be ready to open talks.

"Every player dreams of wearing the jersey of a top club, and Inter are definitely a big team," Ruznic was quoted as saying by Il Sussidiario.

"I have read about their interest in the newspapers, but they haven't approached me yet. I can tell you that Josip has a buyout clause in his contract, but I can't reveal the amount.

"I don't know whether [Palermo president Maurizio] Zamparini is willing to negotiate the transfer fee, you'd have to ask him about that."

The 23-year-old midfielder joined Palermo from Maribor in the summer of 2010 and has since become an important first-team player for the Sicilians. His current contract runs until June 2016.
