Arsenal’s Shock Move For Chelsea Star Could Be Ruined By Fresh Loan Deal

Frankfurt are keen to secure the services of Lucas Piazon on loan for another year.

Frankfurt are keen to secure Lucas Piazon on loan for another season, potentially ruining Arsenal’s plans to sign the Brazilian.

The Gunners were linked with a surprise move for the Brazilian star yesterday, and the news that Frankfurt are looking to extend the attacker’s loan deal will not help the already unlikely-looking deal to get off the ground.

“We will be looking to discuss things with Chelsea,” Frankfurt general Manager Bruno Hubner told the Evening Standard. “Chelsea might hand him another loan year at our club. That would be what we are looking for because I think the Bundesliga is currently the best platform available.

There is no place for Piazon in Chelsea’s squad currently, and they will be keen to either loan him out again next year to give him game-time, so that his value improves. However the Blues won’t be happy with his current situation at Frankfurt, where he is playing only irregularly. They will hope that he can break into the first team proper as the season progresses. Arsenal on the other hand will probably be keen for the youngster to stay on the bench, lowering the price they will have to pay rivals Chelsea for his services.

Piazon has already endeared himself to Frankfurt fans in the limited time he’s played for them this season, scoring an incredible free-kick in the last minute of a cup game.
