Amauri, 31, has been linked with a move to Parma, AC Milan and Palermo, but his agent insists the player wants to stay in Turin and prove himself to new coach Antonio Conte.

"Amauri is currently in pre-season training with Juventus,'' Giampiero Pocetta told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He is a proud man and he has every intention to prove his worth to new Juventus coach Antonio Conte.

"It's nice to know that certain clubs like Parma have shown an interest in Amauri. But it is still premature to speak of Amauri's possible future destination.''

Amauri scored seven goals in 11 league appearances to help Parma maintain their Serie A status. The Brazil-born player is under contract with Juve for a further season.
