A host of clubs have been interested in the talented forward for much of the summer, but as yet a deal has not come to fruition.
Empoli are not ruling out selling Di Natale to a club outside Serie A, with the club already scouting replacements for the marksman.
"Of all the teams interested in signing him, Palermo for me are the ones with the best offer," said Vitale to 'Guerin Sportivo'.
"But, Di Natale is also liked by Bologna, Brescia and Parma. We have not closed the door on foreign clubs.
"The price depends on the clubs we speak to in the negotiations. We are already evaluating his replacement."
