Chelsea have reportedly won the race for exciting Sao Paulo talent Lucas Piazon.

The 17 year-old midfielder is rated a bigger talent than Kaka was at the same age when the Real Madrid star was coming through at Sao Paulo.

PA Sport says the Blues are poised to beat off competition from Juventus for Piazon.

He is set to move to Stamford Bridge in line with FIFA laws after Sao Paulo agreed to sell him to the Barclays Premier League champions.

The fee is unclear but reports suggest it could be anywhere from £5million to £8million.
