Juventus are chasing exciting Brazilian striker Alan Kardec.

The 20 year-old helped Brazil reach the final of the U20 World Championships in Egypt and is aware of Juve's interest.

Kardec has over two years of senior football under his belt at Vasco da Gama and this season is playing on-loan with Internacional.

"I do like Juve," said the youngster when asked about the speculation.

His agent also told Tuttosport: "I know of Juventus' interest and he can move as early as January. The price? €5 million."
