Amauri 'wants Fiorentina stay'

Amauri is now out of contract and denied rumours of a link with Napoli. “I would like to stay at Fiorentina.”

The striker was on loan in Florence for the last six months of his Juventus contract, but that has now expired.

It means he is a free agent and can adjust his wages accordingly. He turns 32 on June 3.

“I don’t know what will happen,” the Italy international told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“At the moment I am still in Florence to recover from a muscular problem. I am a free agent, but I would like to stay at Fiorentina.

“In the last two years the team has not done well, but the club remains strong. Napoli? There has been no contact, it’s all just rumours.”

The Viola are still without a Coach for next season, though the current hot favourite is Catania boss Vincenzo Montella.

“As a player he was formidable and as a tactician he is doing brilliantly,” added Amauri. “If he were to come to Florence, everyone would be happy.”
