Chelsea right-back Wallace Oliveira is likely to be loaned out by the club once again, his agent has revealed.
The player has just returned to London after spending one and a half seasons at Grêmio, where he couldn’t get much game time.
Despite having signed for the Blues in 2013, the 23-year-old still hasn’t had any chances to play for the club, and it seems it isn’t Antonio Conte who will give him the first.
Speaking to Sport Witness, Wallace’s agent Frederico Moraes said: “There’s nothing certain yet, because he’s still presenting himself to the club. But he will certainly leave on a loan deal”.
“There’s an offer from Portugal, but the salary offered is too low, so it would have to be sorted with Chelsea. There’s also interest from a Dutch club, but nothing official.”
Wallace’s contract with Chelsea expires at the end of next season, which would make him able to leave for free at the end of the spell. But Moraes claims the club “should activate the option to extend for one more year” before sending him out on loan again.
Since bought by the London side, Wallace has already had loan spells at Fluminense, Inter Milan, Vitesse, Carpi and Grêmio.
