Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans have now erupted in response to a fresh claim on FSG’s supposed bid to sign Italy star Federico Chiesa.
Chiesa, who played a starring role for the Azzurri as they clinched Euro 2020 glory, has been the subject of intense speculation regarding his future in Serie A.
Bringing another update, SPORT1 Chief Reporter and Bundesliga journalist Florian Plettenberg has now dropped some news to the contrary.
Speaking to LFC Transfer Room, he says that FSG did in fact make a bid to sign Chiesa alongside Chelsea.
He believes that the Blues in particular ‘100%’ lodged a €100 million (£85.5m) offer for the Italian, but he hasn’t got information on the exact amount Liverpool bid.
Plettenberg does however say that both teams sent offers, even if they ended up being turned down.
Chiesa, who managed eight goals and eight assists in 28 Serie A starts for Juve last year, also completed more dribbles per 90 (1.6) than any Reds star bar Sadio Mane (WhoScored) – leaving little wonder why Liverpool made an attempt.
Flocking to Twitter, many Liverpool fans have erupted over this news in response to LFC Transfer Room – find their best verdicts down below.
