Agent questions Chelsea wisdom in Lulinha pursuit

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."
