He is expected to be one of the first players picked in Brazil's squad for the Rio Olympic Games football tournament in August.

"I spoke with one of Bayern's scouts. And I previously had a conversation with somebody at Juventus. But they are only inquiries." Gabriel's agent, Cristiano Simoes, told Brazilian portal Lance on Thursday.

The 19-year-old has a release clause of 40 million euros ($45.2 million) written into his Palmeiras contract.

"It's not only the financial aspect that we're looking at," the agent said. "We're analysing projects, cities, the language, everything. He is not in a hurry. Right now we are focusing on the Brazilian championship."
