Lafferty is believed to have accepted a three-year contract with Palermo as they want him to spearhead their bid for promotion back to Serie A next season.
The Northern Ireland international left Rangers last summer as a result of their financial problems and made the move to Swiss side Sion.
Lafferty scored eight goals in 28 appearances for Sion working under former Rangers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso
Gattuso has since left Sion to join Palermo and the Italian is keen to be reunited with Lafferty in Sicily.
Lafferty is expected to seal his move to Italy later this week once he finalises a settlement over his departure from Sion.
