Amauri will remain in Serie A

Available striker Amauri has underlined that he will continue his career in Serie A – despite interest from abroad.

The centre-forward will be looking for a new side after his six-month contract at Fiorentina, whom he joined from Juventus in January, expires at the end of this month.

“My future will certainly be in Italy,” the former Chievo and Palermo forward told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

“I’ve had offers from abroad, but I want to prove myself over here. Once you leave a place like this then you are no longer in the loop. I could move abroad at the end of my career.

“I need to speak to my agent about my situation. I’m out of contract, there are some important clubs who are after me, but I want to know what is concrete and what isn’t.”

When asked about the possibility of a switch to Napoli, the Brazilian-born Italian international seemed interested.

“If President Aurelio De Laurentiis calls me then my phone is always on…”

The 31-year-old scored one goal in 13 League games for the Viola this term.
