Milan prepare Amauri swoop

Milan's striker shortage is likely to prompt a January offer for Juventus outcast Amauri.

The Rossoneri have only Antonio Cassano and Stephan El Shaarawy available for tonight's game with Cesena.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato, Robinho and Kevin-Prince Boateng are all injured, while Pippo Inzaghi has not played a full match in 10 months.

The Corriere dello Sport suggests they will make a January swoop for Amauri to strengthen their attack.

The Brazilian, who plays his international football for Italy, is frozen out of the Juventus squad.

His contract expires at the end of the season, but he rejected all transfers to France and Turkey over the summer.

Juve were furious and consider him to be a huge weight on their wage bill, so they would welcome an offer from Milan.

Meanwhile, the Rossoneri are also said to be showing an interest in Sami Khedira of Real Madrid for their midfield.
