Ambitious Ligue 1 outfit Paris St Germain have made a move for Brazil international midfielder Lucas.
The capital giants are now backed by Qatari investors and are looking to make a splash in the transfer market this summer.
Numerous targets have been identified and bids have been lodged by those considered to be towards the top of that wish list.
Sao Paulo starlet Lucas fits into that category, with the 18-year-old tipped to be a potential star of the future.
He has already shone in his homeland and has won four senior caps for his country.
PSG hope they can lure the talented teenager to Europe, but Lucas' agent claims they may struggle to tempt Sao Paulo into a sale.
Wagner Ribeiro told L'Equipe: "I was contacted by the Qataris about a week ago.
"We received a good offer from the Qataris, but the club doesn't want to sell."
It is understood that Sao Paulo want around €80million (£72m) for Lucas, who is also reported to be attracting interest from Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
