Palermo midfielder Mark Bresciano is beginning to field offers for next season. The Australia international is out of contract in June and yet to open serious negotiations with Palermo about a new deal.

However, Bresciano remains a wanted player, with Sampdoria and Serie B outfit Brescia both in contact with his minders this week.

The 30-year old was also linked with a move to the English Premier League last season but it seems likely he will remain in Italy where he has been since leaving Carlton SC in 1997.

Since then, the creative midfielder has enjoyed stints with Empoli and Parma before he joined Palermo in 2006.
