Chelsea striker Lucas Piazon is keen to prove his worth at a rival Premier League club during the forthcoming campaign, the Mirror understands.
The teenager’s sole league appearance for the Blues came as a substitute in the 8-0 victory over Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge last December, when he won and missed a penalty in the final fifteen minute of the game.
He was then sent out on loan to Malaga, where he played fourteen times under new Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.
However, the Brazilian under 17 international believes his time would be best served playing in England’s top flight.
Liverpool and newly promoted Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for the nineteen year old, with Selhurst Park thought to be Chelsea’s preferred destination for their player.
The Eagles have already signed two strikers this summer, bringing in Dwight Gayle from Peterborough United as well as offering a one year deal to veteran striker Kevin Phillips.
