The agent of Gremio defender Mario Fernandes has revealed the growing interest of Italian clubs.

Since October, Inter Milan have been in talks with Fernandes' minders about a move to Italy.

His agent, Jorge Machado, told "Mario was back in camp yesterday after his injury and played a great game. He was the best out there and this makes us very happy.

"In addition to Inter, there are other clubs interested. In Italy, Juventus and Napoli contacted me through intermediaries."
