Viola snub Montolivo-Amauri offer

Fiorentina have reportedly turned down an offer from Juventus, which included Amauri, for Riccardo Montolivo.

The Italian is set to leave the Viola in the summer after so far refusing to sign a contract extension. His current deal expires in June 2012.

According to Mediaset, the Old Lady have already been in talks with the Tuscan club regarding the former Atalanta youngster.

The report claims that Juventus made a player plus cash offer, with Amauri the man offered to the Artemio Franchi outfit.

However, despite Amauri's return to scoring form at Parma, Fiorentina are understood to have rejected the approach.

Amauri has been on loan at Parma for the last six months, but will return to Juventus during the summer.

Inter are also understood to be keen on Montolivo.
