Amauri would love Napoli chance

Amauri says he would love to play at Napoli next season alongside Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

"It wouldn't be a bad trident at all," he told Radio Kiss Kiss. "I know Edinson from our time together at Palermo, but the real soul of Napoli is Lavezzi.

"He's a crazy player and whoever plays alongside him always scores a flurry of goals," continued the striker.

Amauri's future is unclear given that he spent the last six months on loan at Parma and has just a year left on his Juventus contract.

"I don't know what will happen as I'm just hearing rumours at the moment," continued the Brazil-born Italian international.

"Napoli? It is nice to hear people talking about that option as I had my first experience of Serie A with them.

"They are a different club now though, but I received a lot of affection from the outfit and the fans."

Amauri did struggle during his time in Turin, but he started to score with regularity at Parma thanks to seven goals in 11 games.

"I was right to leave Juventus," he added. "Things got difficult at Juve, especially during January.

"I was unable to do anything, but I showed people that I wasn't to blame thanks to my efforts for Parma.

"I'm happy and I hope to start the next campaign in the same way that I ended the last one."
