Amauri would love Roma offer

Available Juventus striker Amauri has admitted that he wouldn’t snub a proposed January move to Roma.

The Brazilian-born Italian international has been paired with the Giallorossi over the last few days after the capital club lost Pablo Daniel Osvaldo to injury and loaned Marco Borriello to Juve.

“I’d be very happy,” the forward, whose Juve contract expires in June 2012, told Roma Giallorossa.

“If this possibility occurred then I would go. It would be a great opportunity for me and Roma are still a big club who are fighting for the top places.”

Amauri, who hasn’t played a single minute for Juve this term, would also love to play alongside Giallorossi icons Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi.

“What Francesco has done is under the eyes of everyone,” the former Palermo and Parma man continued.

“It would be easy to play alongside him and also De Rossi – an extraordinary player who has become a phenomenon.

“I would be honoured to join Roma.”

However, both his agent and Juventus have recently admitted that there has been no contact with Roma so far this month.
