Juventus is hoping wantaway striker Amauri makes the move to Tottenham in January, according to general manager Giuseppe Marotta.

The Brazil-born Italy international is set to leave Juve in next month's transfer window having fallen out of favour at the Serie A club.

Amauri has been strongly linked with a switch to the Premier League, with his agent claiming Tiottenham is one of his suitors.

Juve has said he can leave for free when the transfer window opens and would be happy to see him move to White Hart Lane.


Marotta told Sky Sport Italia: "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."

Meanwhile, Marotta says Juve has not ruled out selling winger Milos Krasic next month, with the Serbian reportedly unhappy in Turin.

"Sell him in January? This could be a possibility," he added. "He's experiencing a phase of involution at the minute but is a valuable player.

"He could be useful in the championship."
