Amauri considers Parma renewal

Amauri has rediscovered his form at Parma and his agent reveals a contract renewal is possible despite offers from Brazil.

The Italian-Brazilian striker netted 10 goals so far this season, his best showing since 2008-09 for Juventus.

“The important thing both for the player and the team is to do well from here to the end of the season,” agent Giampiero Pocetta told parmatoday.

“Of course Amauri wants to keep working in order to always do better. He wants to maintain himself at this level to keep scoring goals.

“Only afterwards will be evaluate the situation, although there is a meeting planned with the club. I won’t rule out that Amauri could extend his contract, as he loves Parma and the people of Parma love him.

“It is an unbreakable bond that prompted him to turn down a very important proposal from Hoffenheim in January, which was also advantageous in economic terms. There are the foundations for a new deal and we’ll see what happens.

“There is no point denying other clubs have made enquiries and some more than that. They are not only coming from Brazil, either,” continued the representative.

“South American football is growing, Brazil is strengthening economically and preparing for a World Cup. I won’t say more, other than in the next few days there will be a meeting with the club.”
