Liverpool are reportedly interested in a summer move for Italy and Juventus winger Federico Chiesa, in what could be a hugely exciting signing.
The Lowdown: Chiesa shines at Euro 2020
The 23-year-old enjoyed a fantastic Euro 2020 campaign with the Azzurri, scoring twice and sealing glory in the final against England on Sunday.
Chiesa’s direct style made him a nightmare to play against and it is no surprise to see the on-loan Juventus man being linked with a host of top clubs.
The Latest: Liverpool linked with exciting move
According to Calciomercato, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have both ‘knocked on the door’ regarding a summer move for the wide man, whose current permanent club is Fiorentina.
The €100m-rated (£85m) Italian is expected to stay at Juventus and eventually sign permanently, however, with the Serie A giants not entertaining the idea of him moving elsewhere.
The Verdict: Sign him up, Jurgen
Chiesa looks like a wonderful young player with a huge amount of potential – Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann has hailed him as ‘fantastic’ – so the idea of Liverpool signing him is an exciting one.
He could be a perfect long-term replacement for the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, scoring and assisting eight times apiece in the league last season and proving to be dangerous on either foot.
That being said, the likelihood is that Juventus will take up the offer to sign Chiesa on a permanent deal, so this may be a dream rather than a reality from a Reds perspective, with Fabrizio Romano claiming the winger is ‘untouchable‘.
