Harry Redknapp considering Carvalho Amauri swoop
Italy striker's agent claims Spurs are one of eight clubs looking to secure the forward's services this summer
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is considering a summer swoop for Italy striker Carvalho Amauri, according to the player’s agent.
Amauri, 30, is currently on loan to Parma from Juventus and is due to return to the Turin side at the end of the season.
However, the Brazil native is expected to leave Juve in the summer and agent Ernesto Bronzetti has revealed that Spurs boss Redknapp has expressed an interest in signing the forward, who has netted seven goals for Parma this term, as he looks to strengthen his attacking line-up.
“There are several clubs interested,” Bronzetti told Tuttosport. “There are at least eight bids for him – from England where I can reveal Tottenham [are interested], but also from Spain and Germany.”
Bronzetti added: “In Italy there are two clubs on him, one in Rome [Lazio or Roma] and one in Milan [AC or Inter Milan] but I cannot say which.”
Amauri struggled to make an impact at Juventus despite a positive first season in Turin, but the former Chievo forward has enjoyed a return to form at Parma, where he has been playing alongside veteran striker HernÃƒÂ¡n Crespo.
“In Parma, Amauri is proving his worth. He is a champion who has found serenity,” continued Bronzetti. “At the end of the season he will decide his next team along with Juventus.”
