Chelsea are ready to sign brilliant Brazilian wonder boy Lucas Piazon from Sao Paolo - in a bid to beat their transfer ban.

TheStamford Bridge outfit sent their top men to South America at theweekend in a bid to tie up a move for the skipper of Brazil's under-15side.

Piazon, an attacking midfielder, scored twice as Brazilthrashed Bolivia 4-0 in a game watched by leading talent spotter Petede Visser and talks have already begun to bring him to London.

CarloAncelotti's ambitious Chelsea want to move fast, tying up the movebefore any possible enforcement of the FIFA transfer ban that ishanging over their heads.

The tall midfielder, who is like Kaka in style and size, is alsoknown to the other Premier League clubs like Manchester United andArsenal from his recent displays in the Nike Youth Cup in Manchester.

However Chelsea believe they have won the race for the youngster and will fly him in to complete the deal in the coming weeks.

I thought England don't allow work permits for under-18 South Americans?

My thoughts exactly, although there are circumstances where he possibly holds a European passport from somewhere? Also it is allowed in certain circumstances. Would be good for us to pick up some South American talent. U15's though is a young age and unless he does have an EU passport then i wouldn't think our chances of bringing him over are very good.

Yeah, but we can sign him then put him on loan until we can get work permit for him. Like we did with Alex.

Isn't there a special rule for players with 'exceptional talent'? Although the FA isn't really clever about this xD. They rejected Messi, it wasn't an 'extraorindary talent', when Arsenal tried to sign him xD.

Chelsea are hoping to finalise a move for Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Piazon.

Piazon has already been dubbed the 'New Kaka' following his superb displays for Brazil in the South American Under-15 Championships.

The Sao Paulo forward scored a hat-trick against Bolivia and finished the tournament as top scorer with ten goals.

Reports in Brazil suggest that Chelsea have already started negotiations with the South American club and hope to finalise a move in the near future.

Juventus have also been linked with Piazon, but they have made no offers for the teenage superstar. Chelsea look the strong favourites to clinch his signature.

16 years old, someone for the future.

Maybe we should be looking into getting players to help the squad NOW rather then the future?

But still good to see the club trying to gain some of the so called world future stars.

Brazilian wonderkid Lucas Piazon has snubbed Chelsea and agreed a move to Juventus.

The 17-year-old Sao Paulo striker is regarded as one of the best young talents in the world, and has been dubbed the ‘New Kaka’.

Chelsea looked favourites to land the teen sensation, but Piazon has spent the past week in Italy training with Juventus and has now decided to join the Serie A side.

“Juventus are one of the greatest clubs in the world and I am proud to be able to become one of their players," he told Tuttosport.

"My dream is to score goals and make the fans happy. I have already met players. Felipe Melo and Amauri said hello and I had a photograph with Alessandro Del Piero."

Reports in Italy claim Piazon has yet to officially complete his switch, but a deal worth around 5million euros is expected to be rubberstamped in the coming days.
