Olivera – made famous by his father’s, Brazil legend Bebeto, goal celebration at the 1994 World Cup – has little first-team experience but has shown enough potential to warrant a move to the Turin giants according  to reports in Italy.

And the 18-year-old’s agent, Vantuil Rodrigues, is confident the deal will soon be finalised.

"Everything is going okay," Rodrigues told Lancenet.

"The last details have been agreed. Only some paperwork is needed to make the negotiations official - the fees and the contract length have been agreed.

"The paperwork should arrive any day now and, when that happens, Mattheus will travel to Italy to undergo a medical."
