The Italy international has been one of the revelations of the Serie A season and has caught the eye of Roma.
Giallorossi coach Luciano Spalletti has been impressed by Amelia's performances and is now considering a January bid.
Spalletti has not been happy with Curci and Doni - the two keepers currently at his disposal - and is aiming to tempt Amelia to Stadio Olimpico.
Amelia is receptive to Roma's overtures and confirmed his wish to sign a contract in the Eternal City in the New Year.
"I'm ready to sign a contract for life with Roma," Amelia told a Tuscan television programme.
"I feel I am ready for such an important place like this one."
But while Amelia is keen to move on during January's transfer window, Livorno are reticent about selling the shot-stopper midway through the season.
