Report: Chelsea, Manchester United & Arsenal Queue Up For 'The Next Kaka'

A trio of the Premier League's big guns are eyeing the next big thing from Brazil.

Following England's 1-0 loss to Brazil, the British press have speculated that a host of the Premier League's biggest clubs are noting the young talent emerging from South America, and Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been linked with 15-year-old prodigy Lucas Piazon.

Piazon, a forward from Sao Paulo, has been lauded as a future star for the Selecao, and has been likened to former FIFA World Player of the Year Kaka.

According to a report in The Daily Mirror, Piet de Visser - a scout for Stamford Bridge side Chelsea, was in attendance during a Brazil youth side's 4-1 mauling of Bolivia. Piazon stunned onlookers by scoring a hat-trick.

Piazon is not unknown to Premier League talent-spotters, as he was involved in a recent Nike Youth Cup, staged in Manchester.

Chelsea may be eligible to recruit talent in January, before their appeal against the transfer embargo imposed on them by FIFA for inducing Gael Kakuta to breach his contract is heard. The Blues have also been linked with Everton's rising star Jack Rodwell.
