Jasmin Kurtic: Has been linked with a summer move to Reading

The Slovenia international midfielder, who is also thought to be on the radar of Italian club Torino, is contracted at Palermo until June 2015.

But Zamparini has said the 24-year-old could be on his way out of the relegation-threatened side in the summer after attracting interest from clubs abroad.

However, the chairman says Kurtic will not be leaving on loan if he does part ways with the Rosanero.

He 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."

Asked about Torino's reported interest in the midfielder, Zamparini added: "President Urbano Cairo is my good friend and we can talk about everything.

"In Kurtic's case there is actually only question, about his transfer fee."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
