Juventus Target Benfica Winger Fabio Coentrao - Report

Old Lady keen on Portuguese hot prospect...
Juventus are keeping tabs on Benfica left winger Fabio Coentrao, news daily Corriere dello Sport claims.

The 22-year-old winger, who can also operate on the left side of the defence, has attracted much affection from across Europe after a good season with Benfica.

Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Chelsea have all been mooted as possible suitors for Coentrao, who has been a starter for Portugal at the World Cup.

Recent reports suggest that Coentrao's display for the Seleccao against North Korea on Monday has also attracted interest from Juventus as they plan to add to their attacking options.

The former Rio Ave man has a €30m buy-out clause attached to his current deal, and Benfica have declared they remain keen on respecting that figure.

Coentrao has stated he is happy with life at Benfica, with whom he is contracted until 2015, but he has refused to rule out a summer transfer after declaring he is "ready for any challenge in his career".
