Fluminense looking to lock up Wallace

Young RB is partly owned by Chelsea

Hopefully you didn’t get scared by his picture. Anyway, the promising 18 years old right back has been getting attention from Italian clubs Napoli,  Inter Milan and Juventus with the latter offering 5m euros for his services, while Chelsea was also rumored to be interested in the player, but as they currently own 40% of his rights they wouldn’t have to pay a huge amount of money.

Lucas Moura close to PSG

Lucas heading France

They were 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the league table last season respectively, and they were also expected to challenge for the title again this year. But at the moment, while Vasco and Fluminense are pretty much on the title run and looking like good contenders and Corinthians lost much of their step after focusing on Copa Libertadores, there is a party crasher in the middle of them, one that stands at 1st place and doesn’t seem to be willing to move from there: Atlético Mineiro.
