Chelsea are set to loan their Brazilian younger Wallace to Italian giants Inter Milan, according to the Daily Express.
The 19-year-old right-back is unable to stay at Stamford Bridge this season due to work permit issues.
Jose Mourinho has been impressed with Wallace since his arrival from Brazilian outfit Fluminense this summer, but his lack of international appearances for Brazil make it impossible for Wallace to be granted with a work permit to stay in England.
Like what Chelsea have done in the past with Brazilian defender Alex when the loaned him to PSV for two years. Chelsea are keen to keep Wallace playing at a similarly high level and believe that he can gain the first-team football needed to get the international recognition needed to be granted a work permit.
Inter have registered their interest in taking the Brazilian on a season-long loan deal. Wallace will still face stiff competition if he was to join Inter as club-legend and club-captain Javier Zanetti is still a regular starter at right-back.
Walter Mazzarri, Inter's new coach would see Wallace as an ideal signing as he the full-back loves to get forward and would be suited to Mazzarri preferred 3-4-3 formation he used to great effect with Napoli.
At Napoli Mazzarri had good attacking players on either flank, such as Maggio and Zuniga. Mazzarri would look to replicate this at Inter if they do indeed sign Wallace.
Wallace has a perfect opportunity and a the grand stage of the San Siro to showcase his talents. Serie A is a very competitive league, and Wallace will have to be at his best to have a positive effect for Inter and to break in the Brazilian national team.
Maybe this time next year Wallace will be preparing for a new season with Chelsea if all goes well at Inter.
