Chelsea youngster open to Premier League loan move


Chelsea forward Lucas Piazon has stated that he may have to go out on loan next season to continue developing his career.

The 19-year-old Brazilian forward has had few chances at Chelsea and was sent on loan to Malaga last season. He is still yet to score a senior career goal. 

The player is hoping to get some chances at a Premier League team next season as he may not get a look in at his parent club.

When speaking to ESPN Brasil, he said: "It's hard to say how often I will play or if I will play at all. We have to wait and see if any Premier League clubs are interested."

Piazon also welcomed the second coming of Jose Mourinho as Chelsea manager and is looking forward to the opportunity of working under the famous Portuguese coach.

"I am excited, everything will change," Piazon added. "It will be good working with someone like Mourinho."

Personally I would like to see the forward at Stamford Bridge next season, perhaps playing in the cup competitions when it would be better to give the likes of Fernando Torres a rest.

However, with the Spaniard out to prove his critics wrong he will probably be wanting to get as much game time as possible in the coming season after ending the last one in the best possible fashion - with a goal in the Europa League final. 

Piazon does need to get some Premier League games under his belt to start experiencing the pace and power needed to survive at England's top league.

Maybe one of the promoted teams would be interested in taking a chance with the Brazilian starlet - or even Sunderland who struggled in front of goal last season.
