Former Liverpool defender Gabriel Paletta is being lined up for a return to Europe by Palermo.

The Argentine, currently at Boca Juniors, would return to Europe after a brief spell at Liverpool.

"He is a stocky defender and really talented in the air," said Nicolas Bertolo, who has just joined Palermo from Banfield.

"We played together when I was at Boca. He called me to ask about the club and I know the deal is practically done. They just need to clear some details but hopefully we will be playing together next year."
