Desperate Chelsea doing everything to close Lucas deal before deadline

Chelsea are pulling out all stops to sign Sao Paulo star Lucas before next week's transfer deadline. The Sun says Chelsea officials are in talks with Sao Paulo over midfielder Lucas, 19, who is also wanted by Liverpool and Inter Milan.

And they are confident an agreement can be reached despite a release clause of £66.8m.

Chelsea could go as high as £25m for the exciting teenager who has won 10 Brazilian caps since making his senior international debut against Scotland last February.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to strike a deal for Moura after putting plans to sign Brazilian striker Willian from Shakhtar Donetsk on hold.
