Juve Want Amauri to Tottenham Deal

Amauri: Soon a Spur?

Reports out of Italy are showing a more defined interest by Juventus to move out-of-favor Brazilian striker Amauri to Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window. Juventus General Manager Giuseppe Marotta admitted his interest in the potential move in an interview with SkyItalia:

Marotta said: "Amauri to Tottenham? On our side there is the desire to facilitate this eventual transfer. We must discuss the needs of the players and hope to be able to satisfy him."

Amauri, 31, has not played once yet for Juventus this season. He arrived to Turin in from Palermo for €22.8 million in the May 2008. But Amauri's deal is set to expire after this season, and Juventus seem eager to recoup some small part of that enormous fee.

Amauri had a strong debut with Juventus, scoring 14 goals in all competitions in 2008--09. But since then his performance has been on the decline with Juventus, leading to an eventual loan to Parma in January 2011. The loan was a success though, as Amauri scored an impressive 7 goals in only 11 league matches.

An acquisition of Amauri would certainly boost Tottenham's striker depth, adding a true number nine to the striker ranks. And with Roman Pavluychenko looking to leave the club in January and Emmanuel Adebayor's loan deal expiring after the season, Amauri could be a useful piece for Tottenham. It would be set to be seen whether Amauri reclaims his form he had with Parma last season, or whether Juventus were wise to freeze him out.
