Fiorentina and Palermo are chasing Corinthians starlet Lulinha.

Palermo sports chief Rino Foschi admitted yesterday that he was battling Fiorentina rival Pantaleo Corvino for the same "South American target".

La Nazione says the player in question is 17 year-old Lulinha, who captained Brazil at the U17 World Cup last month in South Korea.
