Chelsea interested in Brazil youngster Piazon
Monday 16 November 2009
Chelsea are stepping up their interest in Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Piazon it was reported today.
Carlo Ancelotti sent his scouts to South America over the weekend to watch the Sao Paulo youngster in action for the Brazilian under-15 side.
The attacking midfielder, who has been compared to Kaka in his style, scored twice as Brazil beat Bolivia 4-0.
It has been suggested that talks are already underway to secure Piazon's switch to Stamford Bridge, although there is interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.
With a Fifa transfer ban hanging over Chelsea's head, the Blues are eager to conclude any transfer business in January, for which they have been given a reprieve while an appeal is heard.
