Piazon 'realising a dream' at Chelsea
The Brazilian striker signed for the Stamford Bridge outfit aged 17 and, after adjusting to London life, now has his sights set on breaking into the first-team pictureLucas Piazon has claimed he is "realising a dream" at Chelsea and is hoping to gain some first-team experience in the coming season.
Since moving to the Blues last season, the forward has achieved success in the FA Youth Cup, while also receiving praise from former manager Andre Villas-Boas for the progress he had made.
The teenager is also pleased with the way he has settled into life in west London and is happy he made the move to Europe, despite his young age.
Piazon told Sky Sports: "I hope to be in the main group, train with them every day and if I have a chance to play some games."
He continued: "It was a little strange adapting at first but now it is fine. I love London. It is very beautiful and interesting.

|5/1||Chelsea are 5/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League|
"I always dreamed of playing in Europe, mainly in England, so I'm very happy. It is a very big challenge. I always dreamed of playing for Chelsea, so now I'm realising a dream."
The former Sao Paulo attacker conceded that it will be difficult for Chelsea to win the Premier League this season and believes last season's top three will be there again at the end of the campaign.
Piazon said: "[Manchester] United, [Manchester] City and Arsenal are always the teams that give work to Chelsea.
"The Manchester teams are the past champions and Arsenal always come with a good team and playing beautiful football."
