Camoranesi confirmed as Birmingham target

Mauro Camoranesi's agent has revealed that Birmingham have made overtures for the Juventus midfielder. The 2006 World Cup winner has been linked with a departure from Juventus after eight years with the Turin club.

His representative Sergio Fortunato admitted that Birmingham are interested in bringing in the 33-year-old.

"There was an official contact with Birmingham. A Fifa agent gave me a letter from the English management," he told

"They made a proposal and I have discussed it with Juventus. "Birmingham are a respectable team and the Premier League is a good league."

Camoranesi has also been linked with Hercules, who are preparing for the new Primera Liga season in Spain after winning promotion last term.

"With Hercules there has been never anything official, I've just heard these rumours," said the agent.

"With all due respect to the Spanish club, Mauro wants something more than a newly promoted team.

"Mauro wants to play football at a good level for a couple of years. Then, possibly we'll think about other solutions."
