Palermo are poised to launch a fresh bid for Brazilian striker Nilmar.
The Serie A outfit failed in their attempts to land the 24-year-old Internacional forward in the summer.
However, president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed the club are readying a revised offer as they look to secure his services in January's transfer window.
"I want Nilmar to be already a Palermo player in January," said Zamparini.
"One of our men is still in Brazil and I'm ready to pay half his transfer fee right now to ensure we have him for the second half of the championship."
He added: "Palermo's aim is the Uefa Cup but I wanted Nilmar because that's not enough for me, I want to be in the UEFA Champions League."
