Amauri to cover for Ibra?

Milan could make a move for Amauri in a bid to sign an alternative to Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack, writes the Corriere dello Sport.

Ibra is the only big target man that the Italian champions currently have seeing as Alexandre Pato, Robinho, Antonio Cassano and Pippo Inzaghi are all less imposing figures.

In a possible bid to add more weight to their attacking options, the Juventus-owned Amauri is being linked with a San Siro move.

Amauri will be sold by Juventus this summer seeing as he has just a year left on his contract with the Bianconeri.

Parma, where he spent the past six months on loan by netting seven goals in 11 games, would like to keep him but his salary demands are steep.

Amauri is currently on almost €4m a campaign in Turin, a figure which is too high for the Tardini outfit.

Milan are apparently ready to offer the Brazilian-born Italian international a two-year deal worth €2.5m a campaign.
