Tuttosport says Inter president Massimo Moratti has sent scouts to Brazil to uncover the next big thing and is having this month's Sao Paulo youth tournament watched extensively.

Corinthians midfielder Lulinha, Alex Teixeira of Vasco da Gama and Internacional de Porto Alegre's Tales have all been watched by Inter since the tournament kicked off.

However, the player who has made the biggest impression on Inter reps is Santos' 18 year-old attacker Alemao.
