Juventus are following Corinthians wing-back Andre Santos.

The 26 year-old came to the attention of Juve's chief scout Renzo Castagnini during an extensive scouting trip to South America late last year.

La Stampa says Juve are now exploring the prospect of bringing Santos to Turin next season and will hope for better luck this time round after being trumped by AC Milan in January for former Gremio fullback Felipe Mattioni.
