Amauri on Marseille radar

Juventus striker Amauri could be the latest Serie A player to head to France – but it's Marseille and not Paris SG who are keen.

PSG have been very active in the Italian market following their swoops of Jeremy Menez, Salvatore Sirigu and Momo Sissoko. Javier Pastore could also follow.

Yet it is Ligue 1 rivals Marseille who have shown an interest in the Brazilian-born Italian international.

"Marseille are one of the many sides who are following Amauri," his agent Giampiero Pocetta told calciomercato.it.

"They've asked us for information about the player, although there has been nothing concrete yet."

Amauri spent the last six months of the 2010-11 campaign on loan at Parma, a club who yesterday admitted that they'd like him back.

"There is no negotiation going on with Parma," the representative added. "I can deny those suggestions.

"People are still talking about Parma, but there really is nothing in it at all."

Juventus want €7m for the striker who will be out of contract in Turin next June.
