Udinese eye up Amauri

Ex-Juventus man Amauri could be wearing black and white again next season after talks were held between Udinese and his agent.

Sky Sport Italia reports that negotiations between representatives of the Northern club and agent Giampiero Pocetta took place yesterday afternoon.

The Zebrette have struggled to find a suitable partner for Antonio Di Natale since Alexis Sanchez joined Barcelona last summer and, with Antonio Floro Flores tipped to join Bologna, they may be in need of a target man.

Amauri could fit the bill, but would be a risk having scored only once since moving to Fiorentina in January.

The Brazilian's contract expires on June 30 and it isn't yet clear whether the Viola are interested in a renewal, with some rumours even linking him with a move to China.

If he does sign for the Stadio Friuli outfit they will be his 11th Italian club.

The 31-year-old has been employed by Parma, Napoli, Piacenza, Empoli, Messina, Chievo, Palermo, Juventus, Parma and Fiorentina since his first arrival on the peninsula in 2000.
