Amauri yesterday made no secret of his wish to join Juve, saying: "Mama mia! It would be a dream come true to play alongside Alessandro del Piero.

"It would be impossible to say 'no' to Juventus."

Juve are offering Palermo a cash component of £7 million, plus a choice of players including Marco Marchionni, Rafaelle Palladino, Domencio Criscito and Claudio Marchisio.
