Born 20/01/94 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Chelsea had to fight off interest from a number of the world's leading clubs in order to secure the services of the highly-rated attacking midfielder.
Having graduated from the same Sao Paolo youth set-up that produced the likes of Kaka, Cafu and former Blue Juliano Belletti, Piazon has consistently caught the eye when turning out for Brazil's young national sides.
He finished top scorer in the South American Under 15 Championships in 2009 with 10 goals and was then named player of the tournament in another competition held at Old Trafford.
He also won a number of plaudits for his performances during the 2011 Under 17 World Cup as well as the South American Championships in which he played an instrumental role in Brazil's triumph.
