Trincao can play both as a second striker or a right-sided winger. The Gunners scouts have allegedly sent positive reports on him to London and Arsenal are now to decide whether to make an offer for the Portuguese.
Juve, meanwhile, are also said to be interested with the budding talent as they have allegedly profiled him several times and have sent additional inquiries to Braga for further clarification.
It is believed that Juve's sporting director, Fabio Paratici wants to rejuvenate Juve's squad and Trincao could become one of the several young players who'd be brought in to Juve over several years, a scenario frowned upon by Arsenal's management who seek to embellish upon their injury-ridden squad.
Trincao has played only four minutes of first-team league football this season, as he came on as a sub at Braga's 2-0 home win over Maritimo. He has registered 7 outings for Braga's B team though.
