Liverpool have reportedly asked for the transfer of Federico Chiesa from Juventus. However, the Italians have rejected the offer, which is around £86 million.
The 23-year-old forward had a dream run in the Euro 2020 as Italy defeated England in the final on penalties. But, the sudden increase in his form has been a headache for the Turin giants. Many clubs, including those from Premier League are keen on signing him.
Rivals Chelsea and Manchester City as well as other big names such as AC Milan and Bayern Munich are also in the race to sign him. His contract expires next year and it would be a big task to convince him to stay at the club.
Will Juventus reject deal for Chiesa if Liverpool offers even more ?
Federico Chiesa joined Juventus from fellow Serie A rivals Fiorentina. Since then, he has scored 14 goals and assisted 10 times in 43 appearances. The Italian youngster is becoming one of the rare talented players in the world and is making his dad Enrico Chiesa proud.
However, interests from multiple clubs have been a concern for the Italian club, who look to win the league after handing over the title to rivals, Inter Milan.
According to the Italian media outlet La Repubblica, Liverpool have already bid for a deal for the youngster but the Italians rejected the offer. The deal is reportedly about £86 million.
It is believed that new head coach Massimiliano Allegri had included him in his plans. He is considered as “untouchables” alongside Juan Cuadrado. Also, they cannot afford to lose such a gifted talent to another club.
The English giants would be looking once again for the deal or maybe looking forward to other deals. They are also interested in signing Franck Kessie from AC Milan, another gem.
