Wallace desperate to play for Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Brazilian defender Wallace has confirmed his desire to return to Chelsea and play his first competitive match for the Blues when his loan spell with Vitesse finishes at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old right-back, who signed for Chelsea from Fluminense in 2013, is currently on a season-long loan with the Blues' Dutch partner club.

The South American youngster has made 13 Eredivisie appearances so far this term, scoring one goal, and has his sights set on returning to Chelsea as soon as possible.

Wallace: My goal is to play for Chelsea

Asked about his arrival at Stamford Bridge, Wallace was quoted by the Daily Star as telling Sambafoot: "Yes, that was great, the other Brazilian helped me a lot.

"The technical staff and other players worked hard to make me to feel good.

"I played three games and all went well. This experience was wonderful for me. My goal is to return to Chelsea as soon as possible."

Wallace pleased to be playing

Wallace spent last season on loan with Italian giants Inter Milan and made a total of four appearances. And while Vitesse might not be quite as glamorous a destination, the full-back is pleased to be playing more regularly.

"I am happy in the Netherlands. At Inter I had less time to play," Wallace added. "I play a lot here and I hope it continues like this until the end of the season.

"Nothing is decided yet. That will depend on my form to the end of season.

"My only goal is currently to finish well in the championship [Eredivisie]. We'll then see what their decision is."

Another season on loan beckons

Should the Brazil Under-20 international continue impressing between now and the end of the campaign, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may opt to take a closer look at the defender in pre-season.

Branislav Ivanovic is likely to stay as Chelsea's first-choice right-back heading into the 2015-16 season, while Cesar Azpilicueta is also capable of playing in that position.

Wallace, therefore, faces an uphill battle to force his way into Chelsea's starting line-up - and indeed their senior squad.

It seems more likely that Wallace will spend next season out on loan elsewhere - possibly with another Premier League club - in order to gain some more valuable first-team experience before being considered ready for Chelsea's senior squad.
