There is talk of Inter offering new terms to the Argentine striker.
"Palacio, to tell you the truth, is someone I always asked to sign when he was at Genoa. I've always liked him as a player, he has the sort of attributes I like, he moves a lot, helps out the team and has an eye for goal. I was confident that he could do well," said Mazzarri.
