The 22 year old, full name Alisson Eular de Freitas Castro currently plies his trade Brazilian Serie A and is just starting to make a name for himself after a loan spell at Vasco Da Gama in 2013.
The forward who can also play attacking midfield does however have his feet firmly on the ground and would welcome any move to Europe in the future;
He told Goal: “I think Juventus is a great team, I really admire even Manchester United.
