London trio chase Juventus striker


Juventus striker Amauri says he is “counting down the days” until he can leave the Serie A club after falling out of favour with Juve boss Antonio Conte.

The Italian-born Brazilian forward has yet to feature for Juventus this season in Serie ‘A’, and has fallen behind Vincenzo Laquinta, Alessandro Matri, Simone Pepe and Mirko Vucinic in the pecking order at the Juventus Stadium, leaving open the possibility of a switch to the Premier League in January.

Tottenham Hotspur, Queens Park Rangers and Fulham are all said to be keeping an eye on developments in Turin, with Spurs said to be leading the race for his signature.

"I'm counting the days until the window opens," he told Sky Italia of his desire to leave the Serie A club.

"I hope that the situation can be resolved as soon as possible. I have no other option but to leave Juventus in January.”

When questioned about joining the likes of Spurs or Fulham in the Premier League he responded: “I'm reading a lot of things about myself in the newspapers, but I don't know what is happening in reality.

"There are people who are working on a move for me and it'll be their job to find me a new club."

The 31-year-old has also been linked with a switch to France, but a move to the Premier League and White Hart Lane in particular looking most likely, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp keen to bolster his attacking unit with the impending departure of Roman Pavlyuchenko.
