Rio de Janeiro: The son of Brazilian World Cup winner Bebeto is reportedly on the radar of Italian giant Juventus.

Matheus, an 18-year-old playmaker for Flamengo, impressed talent scouts from the Turin club while representing Brazil at this month`s South American Under-20 championship in Argentina.

The youngster`s representatives are negotiating with the Serie A side with a possible deal to be announced "within days".

Flamengo officials are understood to be divided about the timing of the player`s sale and insiders say his value could rise sharply in the near future.

Bebeto scored 39 goals from 75 international matches for Brazil and was a member of the 1994 World Cup winning team in the US.
