The former Boca Juniors star has been linked with a return to his old club, or to Mexico after enduring a difficult season with the Yellow Submarines which has seen him net just six goals.
"I accept to study the chance of being transferred away from Villarreal but it has to be an offer that convinces me," said Palermo.
"I want to have the chance to improve and be better than what I am now.
"All this could happen once La Liga ends. When we end our participation this season I will have a meeting with the club's board members just in the same way we did last year and we will see what is decided."
Palermo confirmed he had already received offers from South America but stated it was down to his current employers to decide on his future.
"It seems to be that there is an offer from Mexico, from Cruz Azul and America, and there is also an offer for returning to Boca and an exchange with Sebastián Battaglia.
"There are many rumours, like if the club is looking forward for a transfer for me.
"I think that we should make things clear and if we have to talk about a transfer I don't have any problem in doing it.
"My first option is to continue playing in Europe because I have a personal challenge, I want to have success here and I am not going to give up just like that, so at the moment I am not thinking of the chance of returning to South America.
"I know that they are great clubs but at the moment I am not interested in playing in Boca or in Mexico."
