Palermo have confirmed that two English clubs have made offers for highly-rated defender Simon Kjaer.
The likes of Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United have all been linked with the Denmark international.
Palermo have previously ruled out a January sale but that resolve will now be tested after four clubs firmed up their interest with official bids.
They are in a position to ask for a good price as there is competition for his signature from the Bundesliga as well as the Premier League.
"We have received four offers for Kjaer, two from Germany and two from England," Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini told Sky Italia.
"We hope to keep him."
Zamparini also denied claims that midfielder Fabio Simplicio had agreed to join Roma in the summer.
However, he accepts that a transfer is likely to go ahead as Simplicio is out of contract at the end of the season.
"It seems absurd, but I don't know anything official," Zamparini told Romagiallorossa.com.
"I have read the newspapers and I feel as though the player will probably end up leaving.
"I am happy if he leaves because we want convincing and happy players here. If his performances slide for the rest of the season then he will go in June."
