Amelia wanted in England

26 May 2006 - 10:28:45

Italy goalkeeper Marco Amelia is a target for several Premiership clubs according to Livorno president Aldo Spinelli.

The 24-year-old impressed for his club in the season just ended and earned a call-up for the World Cup finals as a result, being selected as third-choice keeper behind Gianluigi Buffon and Angelo Peruzzi.

Spinelli revealed: "Amelia does have offers from England. However, the teams interested in him will have to dig deep in order to sign him.

"I don't want to sell any of our best players this year."

Amelia started his career with AS Roma, while he has also had a spell out on loan at Lecce since joining Livorno in the summer of 2001.

However, he has become a first-team regular at the Armando Picchi in the last two seasons and has earned himself a promotion from the Under-21 ranks into the Azzurri set-up in recent months.
