Amauri in talks over Fiorentina move

Out-of-favor Juventus striker Amauri claims to be close to a move to Serie A rival Fiorentina.

The 31-year-old has this season struggled for first-team opportunities at Antonio Conte's Serie A leader after last summer turning down a transfer.

Amauri has been linked with Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham, but the Brazilian's representatives are in talks with Fiorentina.

"I hope everything could soon be close," the striker told Lady Radio. "You know well what is happening.


"The two clubs are talking and I hope it could be solved as soon as possible. I hope soon to know the developments of the negotiations. Then we will see what will happen."
