Juventus are close to sealing an agreement with Palermo for striker Amauri.

More talks were held yesterday between Juve and Palermo with a deal close to being struck for £8 million cash plus Antonio Nocerino and Davide Lanzafame.

Juve chief Jean-Claude Blanc will meet with Amauri's agents today in Milan to finalise personal terms, as Bianconeri president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli admitted: "To get the signature there must be an agreement in three: we, Palermo and the player."
