Amauri heading for Viola medical

Amauri will undergo his medical at Fiorentina on Tuesday, the available Juventus striker has confirmed.

The two clubs have agreed terms for the centre-forward, but the move has been delayed by the imminent birth of his child.

“I’ll be in Florence tomorrow to have a medical and to put myself at the disposal of the team,” he told Radio Blu.

“The delays have been caused for personal reasons – Fiorentina allowed me some time to spend with my wife.”

The 31-year-old, whose Turin contract expires in June, is available for transfer after not playing a single minute for Juve this term.

Fiorentina and Juventus reached a deal last week, but reports on Friday were suggesting that Milan could hijack the move.

“The Milan rumours were not true,” added the Brazilian-born Italian international. “I’ll clear up everything in the future.”
