Chelsea outcast Lucas Piazon has told the Blues that he wants to leave the club in January on a permanent transfer.

Joining Chelsea from Sao Paulo in 2012, the Brazilian winger has made just three senior appearances for the club and has had loan spells at Malaga, Vitesse, Eintracht Frankfurt, Reading and Fulham.

Chelsea did not place him at another club in the summer and with his contract expiring in six months, the player is keen to find a solution in the January transfer window.

And according to Italian daily Tuttosport, Piazon has told the west London club to sell him in January and not send him on another loan deal to another club.

The Brazilian wants to sort out his future in January and is unwilling to join another club on a temporary loan contract.

Serie A outfit Torino are interested in Piazon and have already enquired about the possibility of signing him from Chelsea in January.

Torino want to sign Piazon on a double deal along with Ola Aina, who is on loan at the club from Chelsea, and are hoping to get a discount on the final transfer fee for two players.

The Italian club are ready to include a clause that would guarantee Chelsea 40 to 50 per cent of any future sale of the Brazilian.
