Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admits Jasmin Kurtic could be sold in the summer.
Kurtic has been linked with Reading this year.
Zamparini told Tuttosport: "A Kurtic transfer is something that could happen in the summer. But we don't want to loan him, we will only say yes to a permanent transfer.
"This guy is also wanted in different countries, where they don't buy players in pieces like they do in Italy."
