Many Liverpool supporters have been calling for Federico Chiesa to sign for the Reds after his Champions League match-winning performance.
The Juventus winger scored the only goal 10 seconds into the second half to beat European champions Chelsea in Turin on Wednesday night.
The 23-year-old completed 91% of his passes as well as all of his dribbles and won seven ground duels against Thomas Tuchel’s side, with his left-footed goal the difference in an impressive performance for the Old Lady.
After being linked with a move to Anfield during the summer, Chiesa has scored just twice this season as Juventus have only won two of their opening six Serie A games, but his impressive European Championship performances during the summer have seen the top clubs around Europe take notice. He scored 15 goals in 46 appearances last season before netting two goals for Italy in their Euro 2020 triumph.
With Sadio Mane struggling to hit the same heights as in 2019/20, when he scored 18 Premier League goals, some Liverpool fans want Chiesa to come in and possibly replace the Senegal international as they look to reclaim the Premier League title.
