Juve paired with Carlos Eduardo

Reports emanating from Brazil are suggesting that Juventus are interested in Carlos Eduardo of Rubin Kazan.

The Old Lady are desperately trying to sign a left-sided midfielder and the Brazilian is the latest to be associated.

According to Globo Esporte, the Turin giants are considering an €18m bid for the South American. They are offering the player a four-year deal.

Carlos Eduardo, 24, moved to Europe in 2007 when Hoffenheim netted him from Gremio. He joined Rubin in 2010.

Juve are running out of left-wing options after Hamburg rejected an offer for Eljero Elia and Michel Bastos committed his future to Lyon.

Fiorentina's Juan Manuel Vargas is also a possible target for Juve director general Beppe Marrotta.
