Wolfsburg join race for Juventus' Amauri - report

It seems Italian reluctance to spend the money on forward has seen the Bundesliga club make up ground in their pursuit for him, a report suggests
Amauri's future could lie in Germany as Wolfsburg are the latest in a long list of teams to be linked with a move for the out-of-favour Juventus striker.

Sky Sport Italia reports the lower Saxony side are eager to strengthen their front line after signing Liverpool centre-back Sotirios Kyrgiakos, and Trabzonspor left-back Hrvoje Cale on Monday.

And all eyes are on the 31-year-old Italo-Brazilian who has been associated with several Serie A clubs this summer, all of whom appear to have baulked at his €4 million per annum wage demands.

Parma recently claimed a move for Amauri was unlikely, while Palermo, Napoli and Genoa have all seen their interest fizzle out after making initial enquiries.

Amauri has been told he is no longer part of the plans in Turin, and while he would prefer a stay in Serie A, a concrete Wolfsburg offer could tip the scales towards Bundesliga action.

It is said the player's agent will meet Juventus directors on Tuesday morning to find a solution with a week left before the transfer window breaks off for this year.
