Lucas Piazon may finally be about to secure a permanent move away from Chelsea, with Corinthians lining up a move to sign the player.

According to Goal, the Brazilian outfit are keen on bringing Piazon back to his home country after a spell in the shadows with Chelsea.

Corinthians are hoping to now land the player on the cheap with his contract at Stamford Bridge due to expire at the end of the season.

Despite being heavily involved in pre-season, it does not appear that Piazon is in Maurizio Sarri’s plans.

Piazon did not seal a move away from the Blues in the summer and that has left him out of the first-team picture under the Italian.

The Brazilian impressed on loan at Fulham last season and it looked as if the Cottagers could sign the player permanently in the summer, but the Premier League new boys were priced out of a deal.
