Palermo open to Amauri return

Palermo will hold talks with Juventus at some point over the next few days to discuss a possible move for Amauri.

The Turin giants are ready to sell the Italian international given that he has less than a year left on his present deal.

Genoa, Parma and Marseille have shown an interest, but it seems that the Rosanero would like him back at the Stadio Barbera.

The Brazilian-born player scored 23 League goals in 52 games for Palermo before his €22m move to Juve in 2008.

There is, however, a major hurdle to overcome. While Amauri may accept Palermo as a destination, he'd have to cut his current €3.8m a season wages.

Juve are looking to net at least €7m for the 31-year-old. In 100 games for the Old Lady, he's netted just 24 times.
