Biography

On the final day of the 2016 summer transfer window, the Club announced the signing of Lucas Piazon on loan from Chelsea until January 2017.

The Brazilian attacker joined our SW6 neighbours in the summer of 2011, and in his first season won the FA Youth Cup and was named the club’s young player of the year.

His first senior appearances coincided with high-scoring games in 2012/13, as he featured in 6-0, 5-4 and 8-0 victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester United, and Aston Villa, respectively.

Piazon then spent the second half of the season on loan in La Liga with Malaga, where he sampled UEFA Champions League football for the first time.

The following campaign was spent on loan with Vitesse Arnhem, for whom he scored 11 times as they finished sixth in the Eredivisie, while he helped Eintracht Frankfurt to ninth in the Bundesliga in 2014/15.

Piazon’s first taste of Championship football arrived last season as he featured 27 times for Reading, scoring five goals, one of which came in their 4-2 defeat at Craven Cottage.

He is a Brazil youth international, and has been capped up to Under-23 level.

After a productive first half to the season, Piazon's loan spell was extended until the end of 2016/17.
