Ilicic is ready to leave Palermo after relegation.
"Although he is getting offers from abroad, he wants to remain in Italian football," representative Amir Ruznic told Radio Sportiva.
"He's always said that he is fascinated by the Viola project and the football which is being played by Vincenzo Montella's side.
"However, the two clubs will firstly have to reach an agreement - only after then can we get involved.
"We just have to wait and see what happens."
