Lyon consider Amauri bid

French outfit Lyon have become the latest club to be linked with Juventus striker Amauri, according to reports.

The Brazilian-born Italian international will leave the Old Lady this summer after not featuring in the plans of new boss Antonio Conte.

And with less than a year left on his contract, the Bianconeri are in a hurry to sell rather than lose him for nothing next June.

Parma are interested in his services after his successful six month loan at the Tardini, but his wages are too high for them. He earns €4m a season in Turin.

As a result, a move abroad is now being suggested as the most likely option for the former Napoli player.

Lyon are apparently looking for a powerful target man and Amauri is someone they are seriously considering.

Juventus value the South American at around €7m, but he could be included as part of a deal that sees Michel Bastos move in the other direction.
