Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta is keen to see wantaway striker Amauri join Tottenham during the January transfer window.

Amauri is expected to leave Turin next month, having fallen out of favour under Antonio Conte at the Juventus Stadium.

The 31-year-old has not made a single appearance for the Old Lady this season and, hence, is likely to move on at the first available opportunity.

Spurs have consistently been linked with a move for Amauri and, on Monday, his agent confirmed Harry Redknapp is after the forward.

And, says Marotta, a move to White Hart Lane is a serious possibility for Amauri.

"Amauri to Tottenham? On our side there is the desire to facilitate this eventual transfer," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"We must discuss the needs of the players and hope to be able to satisfy him."

Meanwhile, Spurs have also been linked with Brazil international Leandro Damiao and Fulham star Moussa Dembele as Redknapp looks for goalscoring reinforcements.
