Italian giants Juventus are set to sign teenage Brazilian defender Rogerio, media reports said..

The 18-year-old left-back was due to fly to Italy on Thursday where he will undergo a medical and commit to a long-term deal, Globoesporte reported on Wednesday.

Rogerio is said to have impressed Juventus with his performances during last year's under-17 World Cup in Chile, where Brazil were eliminated by Nigeria in the quarterfinals, Xinhua news agency reported.

Despite his form on the international stage, Rogerio has been unable to break into the first team of Brazilian Serie A outfit Internacional.
