Amauri to Napoli talk dismissed

Posted on 28/10/2010


Juventus striker Amauri will not be making a sensational return to Napoli a decade after he left the San Paolo, according to his agent Giampiero Pocetta. 

The 30-year-old Italy international of Brazilian descent has struggled for goals at Juventus since his high profile move from Palermo two years ago. 

He has scored just 17 times in Serie A in 67 games, a staggering 12 of which came in the first half of his first season in Turin. 

Earlier this week, Napoli director of sport Riccardo Bigon told Sky Italia that he is making inquires ahead of the January transfer window. 

Amauri has been strongly linked with Napoli in recent weeks, although it appears they are only rumours.

“There’s no truth to it,” Pocetta told Radio CRC. 

“The player doesn’t figure in Napoli’s plans,” he concluded.
