The World Cup winner could be forced out of Palermo this summer and Udinese are more than happy to take him.
Gilardino, despite guiding an otherwise helpless Palermo to safety may be cut loose this summer by the Rosanero. Despite having another two years on his contract, Gilardino doesn’t fit the plans for Maurizio Zamparini’s retooled Sicilian side.
Meanwhile Udinese, who are coming off one of their worst seasons in recent times, have lost Antonio Di Natale and want a similar player to replace him, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Alberto Gilardino and Palermo could split on mutual terms in the coming days, and the Friulian side have already placed the Serie A journeyman on their radar.
