Juventus in advanced talks for Botafogo defender Doria

Juventus are shopping in Brazil for a new defender.

With Lucio cut loose and Giorgio Chiellini breaking down, Juve need to find a new defensive signing in January.

Globoesporte says a deal is already close which will see Botafogo defender Doria move to Turin.

The 18 year-old stands at 1.9m and his registration is partly owned by investors and a management firm.

"There is still nothing definitive," said one of the agents, Jolden Vegette, "but the transfer should be finalized after January 6.''
