Mariano Grimaldi said: "In recent months I have been able to get to know (Roma sports director) Daniele Prade. Amauri is at the top of the wish list of many clubs, including Roma.

"Interest from Roma has arrived. Amauri loves the game of Luciano Spalletti. And playing with Francesco Totti would be the best, there's many reasons why he'd like to go there."
