Palermo would have no issue selling Franco Vazquez to Fiorentina this summer according to the club's Vice President Guglielmo Micciche. After playing a starring role in helping the Rosanero retain their Serie A status this season, the Argentina native is widely tipped to move on once the transfer window opens.

The Sicilian side battled against the drop for the entire campaign, with the 27 year old's eight goals and seven assists a major factor in their survival and Micciche was happy to heap praise on his contribution this weekend.

"Vazquez had an excellent season and if the right offer comes in then we would be willing to let him go," the club official told Radio Blu. "He would cost a lot because he is a very good player, one of the few proper no. 10s in Italian football. It was said last season that whoever signed [Paulo] Dybala would be making the deal of their lives and I would say that again this year for Vazquez."

Asked about the possibility of Vazquez joining La Viola, the Palermo official noted the previous deals struck between the two clubs. "We have an excellent relationship; you just have to look at the sales of [Luca] Toni and [Josip] Ilicic. The door will be open to them if they are interested."
