It's hard to believe that Lucas Piazon signed for Chelsea in 2012, since then the Brazilian has only made one senior appearance for The Blues with the 22 year old spending the duration of his stay in West London away from the club on loan with Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Frankfurt and Reading, before joining Fulham at the start of this season.

In an interview with GetWestLondon.co.uk, Piazon stated: "It's hard to talk about the future."

"I'm focused on playing well for Fulham right now. But if I had the chance, and if all goes well - you never know. Football is crazy.”

"I think I feel comfortable here at Fulham, and I come from Brazil, so I like to have the ball and this team likes the ball so it suits me."

Could it happen? Fulham’s chances of signing Piazon have seemingly been giving an endorsement by the forward, if reports are to be believed.

Nicholas Llanos

The 20 year old is currently plying his trade for Croatian top tier side Hadjuk Split. The midfielder is yet to break into the club's first team and could be looking to move on to pastures new in an attempt of playing time.

Newspaper, Daily Star have reportedly received information that Llanos' agent has received a 'tentative enquiry' from a Fulham official.

Could it happen? Failing to gain promotion to Hadjuk Split’s first team, should Llanos join The Cottagers, the youngster would likely link up with the club's development team, however that being said, could the young Croat surpass the grueling check list system set by the club.
