There’s no denying that Federico Chiesa, even though he started the first two Italy games at the Euros on the bench, has been instrumental in his country’s run to the final.
His goal against Spain was a key moment of the semis, as was his opener in the round of 16 against Austria, with his performances not going unnoticed.
One club in particular appear to be keen on the Juventus man, and that’s Liverpool, who seem to still be on the market for some wide forwards, needing extra depth for the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané.
This is according to Calciomercato, who state that the Reds ‘have requested for information in recent days’.
They explain Chiesa’s name ‘has been on Liverpool’s notebook since his time at Fiorentina, but the Italian chose to head to Juventus instead to further his career.
The Serie A side have invested in an expensive €10m two year loan with a compulsory option to buy at €40m, which, with bonuses, could take the whole deal to €60m.
A hefty amount of money that makes any approach from foreign clubs very expensive, as Calciomercato state ‘those who want him must put on the plate a figure close to €90m’, which was the ‘amount paid by Manchester United to Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho’.
The bar has been set this summer by Liverpool’s arch rivals, and they have to now pay the price if they want a player of Chiesa’s ability.
