Villarreal are launching a bid for Internacional sensation Oscar.

Oscar inspired Brazil to their U20 World Cup triumph this year and is being chased by AC Milan, Barcelona and Valencia.

Cadena Ser says Villarreal hope an early €15 million offer for Oscar will trump rivals ahead of the January market.

Villarreal scouts have told president Fernando Roig that Oscar is capable of making an instant impact should he arrive during the winter market.
