Liverpool have made enquiries about Juventus and Italy winger Federico Chiesa, according to a report from Calciomercato.
Chiesa was apparently on Liverpool’s radar before he sealed his two-year loan move to Juventus last October. However, the Reds will have to shell out ‘a figure close to €90m’ (£77m) if they’re serious about the signing.
Juventus have negotiated a €40m (£34.2m) option to buy the 23-year-old at the end of his loan.
Recapping Federico Chiesa’s Euros
Roberto Mancini favoured Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi over Chiesa in the early part of the European Championship, but an extra time goal against Austria in the round of 16 changed all that.
The 23-year-old was handed a start in the quarter-final meeting with Belgium and kept his place for the semi-final against Spain, scoring another sublime goal to put the Italians in front at Wembley (via WhoScored).
He came into the tournament off the back of a strong debut campaign in Turin with 16 direct goal contributions (eight goals, eight assists) in 28 league starts (via WhoScored).
Fan feed LFC Transfer Room relayed the link, and here’s how supporters reacted, with one Kopite describing Chiesa as “elite”.
