Chelsea forward Lucas Piazon is wanted by Toronto Police in connection with an alleged sexual assault.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of the 21-year-old - on loan at Championship side Reading - and his Brazil U22 teammate Andrey following an incident which allegedly took place during the Pan-Am Games tournament in July.
