Agent can't see Brazil whizkids Nathan, Boschilia making Serie A move

Serie A clubs are likely to pass on Brazil U17 stars Nathan and Boschilia, it has been revealed.

Atletico Paraense attacker Nathan and Sao Paulo starlet Boschilia have been linked with Arsenal after impressing in the U17 World Cup.

While Serie A clubs have also been linked, Italian agent Nicola Giuliani believes England or Germany will be their most likely destinations once they decide the time is right to move to Europe.

"Their price is too high for an Italian club.

"The fact that they are not (European) Community and in Italy the regulations are very harsh for players without such membership, even more difficult than in the UK.

"To date, Italy invests very little in youth, so I think they will eventually end up in England or Germany."
