Italian agent Sabatino Durante has questioned the wisdom of Chelsea's pursuit of Corinthians teenage midfielder Lulinha.Durante, in Brazil on behalf of an unnamed big Italian club, told Tuttomercatoweb: "I can only give a technical opinion and he is physically very small and does not have a clear role. It's difficult to determine whether he is a winger or a central midfielder. "Yet, Chelsea seem to be interested in him. Apart from the fact he cannot play in England as he does not have a European passport and is not a senior international, his agent seems to be a great salesman."Source: Tribal Football

It would be a great signing, but the guy being interviewed is right, there are some issues involved in us signing him...
There are always ways around these issues.Dont many Brazilians take up a Portuguese passport to gain their right to play in Europe.???If so we can get this sorted and play him on loan to gain more experience and develop, ie...PSV (like Alex)

Well yes there are ways around things like this, one way is to ask for a work permit due to special circumstances, i.e exceptionally taleneted.I would be against anything that meant he didn't come here straight away....

We were close to a deal with Pato, who would have fallen into the same bracket as this kid. So I'm sure the club already have all the right avenues covered incase we make a serious bid.

I am sure your right, the ruling is a bit crazy and is stopping the more talented players comming to the premier league.

tribalfootball.com - November 29, 2007 Brazil teenage sensation Lulinha is ready to resist interest from Chelsea and sign a new contract with Corinthians. The attacking midfielder is a target for Chelsea and revealed: "My agent Wagner Ribeiro says the new contract with Corinthians is agreed and just needs my signature. "I know Chelsea are following me, but there's been no concrete offer. I'm happy at Corinthians because it feels like home." Lulinha's new deal will tie him to Corinthians until 2012 and see his buyout clause jump from £1.5 million to £20 million.

Chelsea remain keen on a deal for Corinthians attacking midfielder Lulinha. TheDaily Mail says Chelsea have not given up on the brilliant young Brazilian Lulinha, whose agent was in London for talks with the club in November. The 17-year-old striker wants to stay for another year at Corinthians, but Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon is hoping an £8m deal can be completed in the summer.Source: Tribal Football

The player can play in all those positions mentioned. he is mostly played as an attacking midfielder but he can play as a support striker and as a central midfielder.

Reports this morning saying that he has agreed a new contract with Corinthians. Now this doesn't at all mean that he is staying there till 2012 but what it does mean that if we want him in the summer we have to pay a hell of a lot more for him....
