Bruma's agent has confirmed that both Chelsea and Galatasaray have tabled bids worth an initial €8 million (£6.9m) for the Sporting Lisbon attacker.

6/1 Chelsea are 6/1 with William Hill to sign Christian Benteke
Newspaper speculation has repeatedly linked the 18-year-old, who previously declared that he would hold discussions over his future after the Under-20s World Cup, with a move away from the Portuguese Liga side this summer.

Bruma was part of the Portugal team that topped their group before exiting at the hands of Ghana in the last 16 and scored five goals in his four appearances at the tournament.

The youngster's agent, Catio Balde, told Antena 1: "I was in charge or presenting offers to Sporting.

"There are offers from foreign clubs, from Chelsea and from Galatasaray, worth €8m, that could reach €12m (£10.3m).

"From this moment on, considering that he is a highly coveted player, it is possible that more offers will arrive, because I know that several clubs were waiting for the best moment to make a move.

"Right now, Bruma's mind is not on Sporting."
