Palermo sports chief Roni Foschi admits they want Juventus youngster Sebastian Giovinco as part of a swap for Amauri.

"Amauri is in charge of his future," explained Foschi. "We will try to make him happy and have met with Juventus. There is no agreement yet, although it won't be difficult to reach one.

"Clearly Giovinco is among our top choices in the transfer, but it's up to Juventus to sell 50 per cent of his contract so that he can play first team football. Another alternative is Antonio Nocerino."
