Lucas Fernandes is showing all the signs that he might be the next youngster from Brazil to make the move up to European football. A wonderful magician on the ball with great close control and terrific dribbling which makes him very exciting to watch. At this stage, he is still trying to imprint his name on the São Paulo’s first team. He has already shown what he can do when given the chance. Much more development in terms of his awaraness of space and anticipation of potential goal scoring opportunities is needed. But, if he can continue to get more playing time, there is no denying he will quickly become a fan favourite.
