Atletico Madrid have handed a trial to Obed Perea, younger brother of their central defender Luis.
Perea junior is a free agent having recently annulled his contract with Florida Soccer, a Colombian second division club.
The 18-year-old has now hooked up with Atletico in the hope of earning a deal at the Vicente Calderon.
The youngster is a left-sided wing-back and, while distancing himself from comparisons with his brother (pictured), admits he would relish the chance to play alongside his sibling.
"I am very proud of my brother, but although it is logical that people are comparing us, we are different players," said Perea.
"Ever since he signed, I have followed Atletico and it would be great to play together."
