Brazilian attacker set to leave Chelsea in coming days

Chelsea attacker Lucas Piazon is close to securing a move to Brazilian club Vasco da Gama.

According to Diario Carioca, Lucas Piazon is ‘close’ to securing a move back homeland when his contract with Chelsea expires.

Lucas Piazon, who joined the side from Sao Paulo in a €7.5 million deal back in 2012, has made just three first-team appearances at Stamford Bridge and has mainly been sent out on loan during his eight-year career at the Bridge.

The attacker has spent time out on loan in La Liga, Germany, the Netherlands, and England with Malaga, Frankfurt, Vitesse, Reading and Fulham.

Lucas Piazon has also spent the last six months on loan at Italian club Chievo, however, they are not believed to make the signing permanent ahead of next year.

The 25-year-old attacker was understood to be the next big thing at Chelsea when he joined Stamford Bridge club, but the creative midfielder has failed to break into the first-team squad under numerous bosses and looks set for a permanent exit from the Premier League giants.

Meanwhile Manchester United have made a formal offer for Mallorca attacking midfielder Toni Quetglas who is a reported Chelsea transfer target and according to AS, the Red Devils, along with Ajax, have both made an offer for the highly-rated playmaker.

Toni Quetglas, who was previously on the books of Barcelona, has caught the eye of several clubs across the continent, including Chelsea.

Chelsea’s interest regarding the teenager is believed to be pending while the Blues waiting to see if they have their two-window transfer ban frozen over the summer.
