Post-Chelsea signing, Wallace set for Fluminense call-up

Rio de Janeiro, April 14 (IANS) After Chelsea signing, Wallace is expected to make a rare start for Fluminense in the club’s Rio derby against Flamengo.

The 18-year-old is set to replace right-back Bruno Sunday, who will be rested by coach Abel Braga following the club’s 0-0 draw against Gremio in the Copa Libertadores Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

Wallace has had few opportunities for the reigning Brazilian top-flight champions this year after representing Brazil at the South American Under-20 Championship in Argentina.

Chelsea secured the defender last November for a reported five million pounds. He will join fellow Brazilians Oscar, Ramires, David Luiz, and Lucas Piazon at Stamford Bridge in July.
