Amauri 'close to English club'

Amauri is “close to signing for an English club,” unless a top Italian club makes an offer, said his agent.

Juventus have put the Brazilian-Italian striker in the stands after he turned down several proposals during the summer.

“Amauri to Napoli? Nobody can close the door to Napoli, but the player is close to signing for an English club,” Ernesto Bronzetti told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Genoa want him too, as do Palermo, but he would prefer to go to Spain or England. Of course, if a top Italian club were to make an offer, then it would be difficult to say no, and Napoli are one of them.”

Milan have also been linked with Amauri as a replacement for Antonio Cassano, who will be out for at least six months following heart surgery.

“I don't think Milan are interested in Amauri,” added Bronzetti.
