Juventus join chase for Otavio

Serie A champions Juventus have been the latest club to be added to the increasing list of suitors for the talented 21-year-old Porto starlet Otavio.

Alerted by his most recent formidable form, Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester City are believed to be closely monitoring Otavio over the last couple of weeks, but Portugal media outlet Ojogo are now reporting that the Old Lady has joined in the race.

Attack-oriented Porto midfielder has been in impressive shape this season, but the potential buyers need to be aware that the Brazilian international is unlikely to be sold on the cheap.

Otavio has a whopping £53.3 million release clause in his contract with the Portugal giants, and given the fact that he still has five years left in his contract with Porto, his club are in no rush to sell.

Brazil youth international arrived to Porto in 2014, on a £2 million transfer from Internacional.

He scored six goals and added 9 assists in the league last season, while he only bagged one goal this term, finding the back of the net against Kobenhaven in the UEFA Champions League.
