Amauri 'staying at Juventus'

Amauri has again rejected a move to Turkey, said his agent. “He wants to stay at Juventus and prove himself.”

The Brazilian-Italian striker has been told he's not needed in Turin, but this summer has turned down transfers to Palermo, Olympique Marseille and Parma.

Juve were hoping to send him to Turkey, where the transfer deadline isn't until Monday, but Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor look to be disappointed.

“Every player has the right to accept or turn down a transfer,” agent Giampiero Pocetta told Sky Sport Italia.

“The player has evaluated the offers on the table, thanked everyone, but decided to stay at Juventus.

“It is inelegant of some to use Amauri's position for their own ends. He just wants to stay at Juventus and prove himself with hard work in training every single day.

“After all, every athlete has the right to work and train in the club he is contracted to. At this moment I think we need collaboration between clubs and players, as this digging in of heels is helping nobody.”
