Amauri days away from Fiorentina

Forgotten Juventus striker Amauri hopes to secure a move to Fiorentina within the next 48 hours.

The Viola have made an offer for the Brazilian-born Italian international and a switch could be imminent.

“There are these two voices about Roma and Fiorentina,” the former Chievo and Palermo man told TMW.

“Fiorentina are the side who want me more. I know that the clubs are talking in an effort to resolve the situation.

“We’ll just have to wait and see what happens over the next two days, even if I hope everything is sorted out before then.

“The problem is not my contract, it is the clubs who have to agree terms.”

It is understood that the striker, who hasn’t played for Juve this term, has accepted a €1.5m salary until 2014.

All that needs to be agreed now is the manner of the transfer between the two clubs. The Viola are trying to pay as little as possible given that the player has less than six months left on his Turin contract.
