Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool target rules out Palermo exit

The Slovenia international has recently been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton.

The 21-year-old joined Palermo from Maribor in August 2010.

“The interest from English clubs? A move does not interest me,” he told Giornale di Sicilia.

“I’ve only played 20 matches in Serie A and I don’t think I need to change teams.

“I am interested in doing well for Palermo. I want to stay here for many years.

“I know my agent will soon ask for a salary increase, but that is not a problem. I am sure it will happen automatically when I deserve it.

“Meanwhile, we have to try and get fourth place. We can do it and it has always been a dream of mine to play in the Champions League.”
