Juventus have made an enquiry as to the availability of Palermo's Brazilian striker Amauri.

Amauri joined the Sicilian club at the start of the 2006/07 season and has hit seven Serie A goals so far this term.

The player has attracted the interest of Milan in the past, and there are calls for him to apply for Italian citizenship after constantly being overlooked by his native Brazil.

However, Palermo president Maurizio Zamperini has stated his desire to keep Amauri at the club for as long as possible and believes that the player does not need to move to achieve his ambitions.

Fundamental player

"I will not sell Amauri now or in June because I want to offer him everything here that can satisfy him," Zamperini told Corriere dello Sport.

"I won't sell him because he is a fundamental part of our team.

"In the last few months we have had approaches from Juve for Andrea Barzagli and now Amauri.

"Juventus are the only side who could meet our demands, but for the moment we will not sell."
