AC Milan have moved ahead of Juventus for Palermo striker Amauri.

Last night, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini denied claims he would not deal with Milan over the sale of Amauri. And La Stampa today says the Brazilian's agent has all but settled on personal terms.

Milan has offered a five-year contract worth £2.7 million-a-season with a view to welcoming Amauri to the San Siro in the summer.
