A number of Liverpool supporters are desperate for the Reds to sign Italy star Federico Chiesa after a rumour linked him with a move to Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s men had a disappointing day at the office on Saturday, drawing 3-3 away to a spirited Brentford side. Some of Liverpool’s defending left a lot to be desired throughout the contest, but they were also wasteful in front of goal when they were 3-2 up.
The Reds’ failure to sign another attacker this summer was hugely frustrating, especially with Sadio Mane continuing to struggle – the 29-year-old drew a lot of criticism from Kopites for his performance over the weekend.
Liverpool have now been linked with an exciting move for £63m-rated Juventus winger Chiesa, with Calciomercato claiming [via Anfield Edition on Twitter] claiming that the Merseysiders are showing “strong interest” in him.
The 23-year-old scored twice in Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph and has been his club’s third-best performer so far this season according to WhoScored, averaging a match rating of 7.29. He also boasts a respectable goal return of 49 in 200 senior club career games.
Liverpool fans call for Reds to sign Chiesa
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to reveal their happiness at the rumour, urging the Reds to snap up Chiesa.
“With how Juventus are playing it’s very possible. Would be a great signing“
“I’m begging, please sign him. Chiesa’s playing style legit will work under Klopp’s management“
“I’m on my knees“
“This kid is a proper footballer“
“Do it for the love of God. Incredible player“
