Chelsea attacking midfielder Lucas Piazon is poised to leave Stamford Bridge on what will be his fifth loan spell away from the club.

Piazon, 22, joined the Blues from Sao Paulo in 2012, making his competitive debut for the club later that year under Roberto di Matteo.

The Brazilian has not played for the club since December 2013, however, with spells on loan across Europe at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt and Reading.

Already this summer, 23 players have left Stamford Bridge on loan with Michael Hector, Izzy Brown and Jamal Blackman the latest to be placed on the loan conveyor belt by the Premier League side. Piazon could become number 24 in the very near future, but is still unsure who he will be joining having held talks with a number of clubs.

"I am supposed to be going out on loan again and I am waiting to see where I go," Piazon told ESPN FC. "I have not yet decided where I may go out on loan. I have spoken to some clubs about going there, but nothing is 100% with anyone and I am just thinking things over."

Piazon's travels have taken him to Spain, Netherlands and Germany before returning to England for a spell at Reading where he made 27 appearances for the Championship side, scoring five goals.

The Brazilian youngster has no real preference as to where his next loan takes him, as long as he is given the first-team football opportunities he desires.

"Myself and Chelsea will make a decision where to go and then I will try and make an impact when I get there.

"I always want to play and be in the starting XI and if I can do that score some goals and create some chances I will be happy with that."
