Inter and Juventus have slapped in bids with Braga for 18-year-old forward Francisco Trincao, who has been linked with Chelsea.

The teenage forward, who broke into the Braga first team squad this season, has attracted interest from several European bigwigs ahead of the winter window, which is set to open in a matter of days.

Chelsea have been keeping tabs on him with a view to taking him to England in the future, but Trincao’s future could lead him to Italy next month.

Juventus and Inter have acted upon their interest in the player and, according to Portuguese daily O Jogo, they have placed offers for Braga to consider in the winter window.

The Italian champions have offered to sign him on loan in January for a fee of €2.5m with an option to sign him on a permanent deal set at €15m at the end of the season.

Inter have tabled a straightforward offer of €10m and want to sign him on a permanent deal in January.

Braga are yet to respond to the bids and are closely deliberating before taking a call on whether to sell him next month.

With the two Serie A giants tabling offers, it remains to be seen whether Chelsea are pushed into taking an action on their interest in Trincao.
