Skysports.com understands Palermo are interested in Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva.
The Italian side are believed to have made an enquiry for the Brazilian international as they look to bolster their squad before the close of the transfer window.
Palermo have held a long-term interest in Lucas and tried to sign him before he joined Liverpool from Gremio last summer.
Liverpool beat a host of clubs to Lucas' signature and he is tipped for a big future in the game.
The 21-year-old has struggled to hold down a place in Liverpool's starting XI this season with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Javier Mascherano and Xabio Alonso all ahead of him in the pecking order.
His lack of regular action has alerted Palermo who are hoping to lure him to Serie A.
Lucas is highly-regarded by Reds boss Rafa Benitez and it is unlikely that Liverpool would be willing to let the South American leave.
