Lucas Piazon joins Eintracht Frankfurt
Lucas Piazon Chelsea’s midfielder has signed for Eintracht Frankfurt on a season-long loan deal.
The 20-year-old Brazilian will gain more first-team experience following a temporary spell at Vitesse Arnhem where he scored 11 goals in 29 appearances.
Piazon has previously been loaned out to Malaga, making his UEFA Champions League debut as a substitute against Porto last February and also played in their Spanish Cup quarter-final against Barcelona.
Frankfurt’s official website read: “We are glad to be able to reach an agreement after lengthy but very fair negotiations with Chelsea.
“Piazon will strengthen us in the coming season. He has played on the left wing, he can play on the right and be used as an attacking midfielder.”
Piazon was part of the Brazil side that won the U20 Toulon tournament this summer, helping his side beat France 5-2 in the final.
