Palermo's Amauri excited by Juventus interest

Palermo striker Amauri admits he is excited to be linked with Juventus.

"I haven't seen the newspapers, but I know what they are talking about and what is going on, even though I'm not thinking about it at all," Amauri asserted. "I am just thinking about working and playing. We will see what happens at the end of the season.

"But for me it is a victory to see my name linked to Juve and other big clubs and I have dreamed of this since I was a child. The Bianconeri are a very important side with a great history and I think that it would be great to play there.

"However, it's true that I still have to improve a lot if I am to impress at one of the biggest sides because the important thing is to stay there. My dream when I was growing up was to become someone and to help my family and I knew that I could arrive at one of several big clubs.

"In time I have been proven right and I have been playing amongst the elite for three years. Today I feel stronger than I was last year and more sure of myself. The injury toughened me up mentally."
