The Juventus striker's agent Ernesto Bronzetti confirmed on Monday Amauri had turned down approaches from the Premier League duo, insisting the clubs were 'not at his level'.

And Parma have now confirmed the 30-year-old has arrived at the Serie A club on loan until the end of the season.

The club said on their official Facebook profile: "Now it's official. At 18.25 Amauri signed for Parma.

"The club announce the temporary purchase from Juventus. Soon news on the presentation (of Amauri) will be announced."

Veteran Amauri, who has struggled for goals at Juve since joining the Turin club two years ago, joins Parma on a second stint after spending time with the Italian club between 2000 and 2003.

The once-capped Italy international scored just five Serie A goals in 2009, and only one last year.

Lazio and Real Zaragoza, as well as Amauri's former club Palermo, had also been linked with swoops for the Brazilian-born frontman this month.
