Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed striker Amauri is on his way to Juventus.

"It's almost done - we are very close to completion of the deal," Zamparini told journalists. "We are working out the final details and we are all very optimistic. There is a 98 per cent chance that Amauri will join Juve.

"Not much depends on Palermo now. It's down to the Old Lady to work out terms with the player and I would expect that to happen soon."
