Juventus striker Amauri is likely to move to England in January, with Spurs and Fulham waiting to snap him up.


The Italy international’s agent has told Italia 1 that the former Parma forward is certainly set to leave the Serie 'A' leaders. This has alerted Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, who have both expressed an interest in the veteran.


Wages are the main reason he has not moved up until now, with The Mirror claiming he turned down moves to Fenerbache and Marseille in the summer and that Harry Redknapp sees him as an ideal addition to his squad.


Martin Jol has also been credited with showing an interest in the Brazilian-born player, especially now there are reports of Bobby Zamora possibly departing emanating from Craven Cottage.


Amauri hasn’t played for the Bianconeri since January, although he did have a short loan spell at Parma last season, scoring seven goals in 11 games.


Ernesto Bronzetti said: "There is a 70% chance that Amauri will play in England, but there is also a possibility that he could join an Italian team.


"Palermo, Parma and Napoli did show an interest in acquiring the player but they could not afford his wages."


With Roman Pavlyuchenko set to leave White Hart Lane and Emmanuel Adebayor looking less and less likely to make his loan move permanent, Spurs could be faced with a forward shortage in January.
