Transfer News: Eintracht Frankfurt Hoping To Keep Lucas Piazon


Eintracht Frankfurt are planning to explore the possibility of extending Chelsea starlet Lucas Piazon's loan into a second year.

The Brazilian forward linked up with the Bundesliga side over the summer on a season-long agreement.

The 20-year-old remains some way down the attacking pecking order at Stamford Bridge and his parent club are eager to get him regular game time.

Frankfurt have been impressed by his early efforts in Germany and would welcome the opportunity to keep him on board for the 2015/16 campaign if Chelsea are prepared to enter into talks.

General manager Bruno Hubner told BILD: 'Definitely, we will be looking to discuss things with Chelsea.

'Chelsea might hand him another loan year at our club.

'That would be what we are looking for because I think the Bundesliga is currently the best platform for Lucas Piazon.

'He can add a certain physical toughness to his game and will be able to make a big step if he learns to become a starter in the Bundesliga.'
