Parma have still not given up in the chase to sign Juventus striker Amauri despite the costs involved.
With just a year left on his contract in Turin, the Brazilian-born individual will be sold this summer rather than released on a Bosman next June.
A host of clubs are interested in the Italian international, but his €7m valuation and his current €4m a season wages are problematic.
Palermo had recently manoeuvred themselves in a position to sign the striker for the second time, but Parma are still monitoring his situation.
Amauri scored seven goals in 11 League games for the Gialloblu last season during a six-month loan spell at the Stadio Tardini.
