The Argentina international has spent the last six years in Spain, making well over 100 appearances during that time.
He is still only 26 years of age and is believed to be approaching his peak.
Sides from across Europe are starting to take note of his talent and it is likely that a transfer scramble will be sparked once the window re-opens this summer.
Fazio's representative Ariel Kiperszmid told tuttomercatoweb.com: "His contract expires in 2014 and we're not talking about extending the deal with Sevilla.
"His future will likely be far from Sevilla. We want to try a new experience.
"In January, the club refused offers from German and Russian sides, but they might be content with a few million in the summer.
"Four Italian sides like Fazio and Serie A would be a welcome destination, but he also has admirers in England.
"Federico would like to play for a top European club."
