The Argentine forward is not in Villarreal's plans for next season and they are looking to loan him out.
Villarreal had considered selling him, but the current market has made this difficult, so the Spaniards are happy to let him go on loan.
He has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce, which would see Ariel Ortega then move back to River Plate and in-turn Argentine starlet Andres D'Alessandro could arrive at Villarreal.
However, the player is in the dark over his future.
"I don't know anything about what is being said," Palermo revealed.
"I don't know about being transferred or being part of any negotiation.
"I am surprised and am just waiting for somebody to tell me something.
"To tell the truth I am used to these things, but I don't enjoy reading about it in the newspapers.
"As nobody has said anything to me, I cannot think that what the press is saying is true.
"I am contracted to Villarreal and I wish to end my contract here, but if I was transferred then I want to play in a team that is fighting for a title and plays in the Uefa Cup or Champions League."
Reports from Spain have suggested that Palermo is being offered to clubs in Italy and Germany.
