The talented youngster has hinted he is willing to leave Chelsea so he can play regularly.
Lucas Piazon has waited patiently for his chance to play for Chelsea since his arrival in 2012, going on loan to Malaga, Vitesse and now Frankfurt, and he’s claimed that his future might lie elsewhere…
In Germany, where he is now, his playing-time has been limited. The Brazilian wonderkid has been mainly coming off the bench, so it’s been difficult for him to make an impression, unlike Thibaut Courtois, who did well enough in his time at Atletico to earn himself a place in the Chelsea lineup.
“It’s different with him,” the Brazilian playmaker told Goal. “He has already made a name for himself and played for Atletico, a big club in Europe.
“I’ll keep on working to play for Chelsea or some other club in the future.”

With young players like Oscar, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah already fighting for places in the Chelsea team, it’s not going to be easy to earn a spot in the squad, let alone the team, and Piazon has resigned himself to the fact that like many before him, he may be forced to leave the club to move forward.
All he can do, as he says, is keep working. Even if Chelsea aren’t interested, there are plenty of clubs who will be.
