The agent of Josip Ilicic has dismissed suggestions that his client was wanted by the likes of Inter and Juventus in the summer.
“It’s all just talk,” Amir Ruznic told Il Sussidiario. “And those rumours annoyed Josip because they created a few problems with the fans.
“There were suggestions of Inter, Juventus and other clubs, but Ilicic has never asked to be sold by Palermo.
“Neither have the player nor myself been contacted by any other team.”
The 25-year-old midfielder, five appearances this term, joined the Sicilian giants at the start of the 2010-11 campaign from Maribor.
