Despite claims from Hernandez's agent that he could be on his way to England, with Sunderland reportedly interested, Zamparini has insisted that the 22-year-old is still in his plans.

"In our attack will be Abel Hernandez," Zamparini told Radio Mana Sport.

"This will be a kick in the ass for former coaches that didn't play him."

However, whilst the relegated Sicilians look set to lose star man Fabrizio Miccoli, Zamparini has already identified Kyle Lafferty as his replacement.

The former Rangers striker, currently playing in Switzerland with FC Sion, knows new Palermo boss Gennaro Gattuso from the Italian's time in Glasgow, and could link up with him again at the Stadio Renza Barbera.

"I followed him last year," Zamparini added.

"I can bring him to Palermo from Switzerland."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
