The agent of Juventus striker Amauri claims his client is keen to force his way back into the first-team picture.
The Brazil-born frontman fell out of favour with the Turin giants last season and was eventually sent out on loan to Parma.
A six-month stint away from Juve saw Amauri rediscover his best form, with seven goals notched in just 11 Serie A appearances.
It had been suggested that Parma would endeavour to bring him in on a full-time basis, while AC Milan and Palermo have also been linked with summer swoops.
The 31-year-old is back at Juve for now, though, and his representative insists he has no desire to secure an imminent move elsewhere.
"Amauri is currently in pre-season training with Juventus," Gimapiero 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's current contract at Juve is due to run until the summer of 2012.
