Juventus are closely following Sporting Braga striker Francisco Trincao with negotiations already underway.

The Portuguese youngster was previously linked to the Bianconeri over the course of the summer and again a few months ago.

The 18-year-old was the star of the U19 European Championship, helping Portugal to win the 2018 edition, beating Italy in the final.

Gianluca Di Marzio now reports that the agents of the player met with Bianconeri emissaries in Milan this week –  The two parties are close and the deal has the approval of Fabio Paratici who really likes the player.

Trincao has an existing €15m redemption clause in his contract and an answer on negotiations over his future is expected next week.
