Chelsea look to complete £8m double deal for talented young duo – report

Lucas Piazon

Chelsea are set to complete the sale of two players despite confusion over who their manager will be ahead of next season.

The Daily Star reports that Tomas Kalas and Lucas Piazon will be looking to make a permanent move to Fulham in a deal worth £8m.

The duo was on loan at Craven Cottage last season as they helped the side achieve promotion to the Premier League under the guidance of Slavisa Jokanovic.

In fact, the pair has spent the last two seasons on loan at Fulham and seem set to sign contracts with the new Premier League side.

Tomas Kalas

We signed Kalas in 2010 while Piazon was brought into the club in 2011, from Sao Paulo. Kalas, 25 and Piazon, 24, were expected to achieve great things at Chelsea but things were just not meant to be for the pair.

It should not come as a surprise that a number of our players are out on loan and hopefully, we can fix some of the deals out for a few of them too.

There is no real point in keeping players that will not make it to the first-team in the future and maybe a change in our plans will get a few more players out of the club, which would reduce the wages. Hopefully, Piazon and Kalas perform well for their new club and help them survive the drop.
