The Slovenia international has been linked with a New Year switch to Liverpool following reports the Premier League club watched Ilicic against Genoa recently.
Ilicic has impressed for Palermo since joining the Serie A club in 2010 and has also been mooted as a target for Inter Milan.
However, the 24-year-old's representative Amir Ruznic has played down the speculation and is not expecting Ilicic to move on when the transfer window reopens.
"Are Inter Milan interested in him?" Ruznic told calciomercato.com. "I have received no phone calls from the Inter management.
"What about Liverpool? I have read something in the newspapers, but I know no more.
"About a possible transfer in January? I don't think it's a deal for the winter market."
