Reds eyeing Brazilian starlet.Liverpool could be set to try their luck with a raid on their rivals Chelsea for Brazilian youngster Lucas Piazon, according to CaughtOffside.
The 20-year-old looks likely to be available for transfer this summer after spending the last two seasons out on loan, first with La Liga side Malaga, and then with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, and with a place in the Chelsea starting lineup looking unlikely.
The Blues are not known for handing opportunities to their young players, instead opting to make big-money moves in the transfer market, and this could allow clubs to snap up this promising young talent.
The skillful attacker can play either as a striker or a winger and could be a useful addition for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers as he seeks to rebuild his side following the recent departure of star player Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
Piazon seems a realistic option due to his lack of opportunities at Stamford Bridge, and he would not be the only player to make that move in recent history, with Daniel Sturridge also shining at Anfield after being offloaded by the London giants.
The likes of Fernando Torres and Yossi Benayoun have also moved between the two clubs in recent years, and Piazon is the latest to emerge as a target for Liverpool.
