Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri has given his backing to Antonio Floro Flores' proposed move to Turin.
The Udinese striker is expected to arrive on a six-month loan later today amid great scepticism.
Asked for his reaction to the news, Del Neri said: "They also gave me up for being unsuited [to the club].
"They said that I wasn't worthy of Juve before I arrived here.
"If Floro Flores does come, I hope he shows the opposite [to what everyone is saying]."
There are reports that the 27-year-old might not be Juventus' only reinforcement up front in January.
Beppe Marotta has already brought in Luca Toni, although the World Cup winner is out for a month with a knee injury.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Juventus will make an offer for Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano if they manage to sell Amauri.
