Juventus flop Amauri, who signed for the club for £19m back in 2008, is rumoured to be meeting QPR representative today to discuss a potential loan move.
The Brazilian-born Italy international has gone on record saying that his career in Italy is coming to an end after a terrible run of personal form that has seen him drop down the pecking order at Juve. He was available for a transfer in the summer and West Bromwich Albion were close to signing the player but couldn’t agree a fee with Juventus.
Amauri spent last season on loan at Parma, and managed seven goals in 11 appearances, but hasn’t been able to force his way into the side this season. The Juve fans are so keen to sell him, one fan fan decided to try and flog the Brazilian on eBay.
His contract with the Turin giants is set to expire at the end of the season and QPR would see a loan move with a view to a permanent deal as very attractive considering the rather unknown level of form the striker would bring to Loftus Road.
Mark Hughes has already raided Italy for his first signing since taking over from Neil Warnock, bringing in Taye Taiwo on loan and he is reportedly a keen admire of the deals available in Italian football currently and has set his sights on the Juventus striker.
Hughes is keen on adding some firepower to the ranks at Loftus Road, as goals have dried up significantly over the past two months, scoring only eight goals in their last 11 fixtures in all competitions.
The club are very much in a relegation battle and need goals fast otherwise their tenure in the Premier League could be a very brief one.
