Juve close on Matheus Pereira

Juventus are reportedly closing on a deal for Corinthians creative midfielder Matheus Pereira.

He just turned 18 and excels in the trequartista role behind the strikers, one that Coach Max Allegri has been trying to fill for over a year.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Juve have already been working at this for some time and are on the verge of agreeing terms with Corinthians for €2.5m.

Pereira came up through the Corinthians youth academy and has two caps for Brazil at Under-17 level.
