The Stamford Bridge outfit sent their top men to South America at the weekend in a bid to tie up a move for the skipper of Brazil's under-15 side.

Piazon, an attacking midfielder, scored twice as Brazil thrashed Bolivia 4-0 in a game watched by leading talent spotter Pete de Visser and talks have already begun to bring him to London.

Carlo Ancelotti's ambitious Chelsea want to move fast, tying up the move before any possible enforcement of the FIFA transfer ban that is hanging over their heads.

However Chelsea believe they have won the race for the youngster and will fly him in to complete the deal in the coming weeks.
