Chiesa linked with Juventus

It’s reported Juventus are interested in Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa, along with Inter and Napoli.

The 20-year-old has impressed since breaking into the Viola first team last season, and has four goals and an assist already this season.

While there is an intense rivalry between the two clubs, Juve signed Federico Bernardeschi for €40m in the summer and Tuttosport claims they’re also interested in Chiesa.

The newspaper notes that while general manager Giuseppe Marotta denied interest in the youngster ahead of the game between the two sides in September he did add “of course, he’s a top player”.

It’s therefore believed the Bianconeri are monitoring Chiesa’s progress, with a view to potentially making an offer in the future.

They would face competition from Napoli and Inter, and even if the winger wanted to leave he wouldn’t come cheap, as he extended his contract last month so he’s committed to the Viola until 2022.
