Newly-promoted Palermo have set their sights on Costa Rica’s Bryan Ruiz, who will be released by Fulham.
Ruiz scored two goals in Costa Rica’s World Cup campaign, netting against Italy and Greece, while his team will face Holland in the quarter-final tonight.
The attacking midfielder struggled to make an impact at Fulham and was loaned out to PSV Eindhoven in January.
His contract expires in June 2015, so the Cottagers will be ready to release him for a nominal fee.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Serie A new boys Palermo are making an approach for Ruiz.
