Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Italian striker Amauri, according to the player's agent.

Giampiero Pocetta has revealed that the player is out of the fold at Juventus, with the 31-year-old seeking a move away from Turin for a chance to play first-team football.

The striker has been linked with a move to England in the past, with Liverpool courting the player heavily in the later stages of Rafael Benitez's reign at Anfield.

However, the Spaniard failed to bring the player to Merseyside from Palermo, with the bianconeri securing the player's services ahead of Liverpool in the summer of 2008.

Whilst the chances of a move to the Barclays Premier League appeared to have gone, Spurs are now in the hunt for his signature, as Pocetta told publication La Stampa.

"We are having talks. He wants to return as soon as possible to a level where he can give his best on the field," he said in reference to the interest of Tottenham Hotspur.

"Our way of working is full of common sense, but for if others have common sense so far there has not been much shown."

Spurs were heavily linked with a striker move in the summer, but after failing to bring in a new player in the position at White Hart Lane, manager Harry Redknapp has since suggested changes in personnel are unlikely.

However, question marks remain over the future of Roman Pavlyuchenko at Tottenham Hotspur, and should the Russian leave the club in the New Year, Amauri could be the replacement in north London.
