Juve admit to Piazon interest

Juventus have confirmed that they are tracking Brazilian teenager Lucas Piazon – but they are not alone.

The Old Lady have been paired with the Sao Paulo prodigy in recent weeks after the youngster won comparisons with Kaka.

"Piazon is a great player," Juventus director general Beppe Marotta is quoted as saying.

"Yes, it is true that we are following him, but so too are other clubs."

Piazon is still only just 16-years-old and he has also been paired with Milan, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Should Juve strike a deal for the attacker then it is likely that they would allow the boy to remain in his homeland until the beginning of the 2011-12 campaign.
