EXIT STRATEGY

Check out the latest moves in the Premier League at Transfer Central.

Brazilian striker Amauri has completed a move to Fiorentina after having fallen out of favor at Juventus.

Amauri has not made a single appearance for Juventus this season since returning in the offseason from a loan spell at Parma.

Fiorentina confirmed Tuesday evening that Amauri has signed a permanent deal after completing a medical earlier in the day. The Serie A side had earlier tweeted a picture of an official team shirt with Amauri's name on the back.

Juventus paid Palermo €22.8 million in May 2008 for Amauri, but the forward has struggled at the Serie A giant and is not wanted by coach Antonio Conte.

The 31-year-old Amauri will be eager to rediscover the form which made him a firm favorite of the fans at Palermo.
