Tottenham have agreed to sign Amauri from Juventus, reports in Italy have claimed.

The 31-year-old striker has been linked with a move away from Turin for a number of months, and Fulham are also said to be pursuing his signature.

However, according to Italian football talk show Controcampo, Spurs have agreed a deal for Amauri that will see him earn £35,000-per-week.

Amauri signed for Juve from Palermo for £20 million in 2008, but has failed to live up to expectation with the Bianconeri.

The Italian spent a period on loan with Parma last term, while he has yet to feature at all for Juve this season under Antonio Conte.

Spurs, then, appear set to offer Amauri a route out of the club, although Harry Redknapp is unlikely to be able guarantee him first-team football at White Hart Lane.

The Spurs boss already has Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor and his disposal, while Rafael van der Vaart has been finding the net on a regular basis.

Roman Pavlyuchenko also forms part of the striking department at Spurs, but the Russian is keen to pursue opportunities elsewhere.
