‘Chiesa, Simeone staying at Fiorentina’

Fiorentina’s joint-owner Andrea Della Valle assures “Federico Chiesa and Giovanni Simeone will stay here”.

The former has been heavily linked with a move this summer, with Inter and Napoli both prepared to pay upward of €50m for the Italian international.

“In these weeks you hear that you have to spend, who you have to buy, but I've heard these things for a long time,” Della Valle told Sky.

“The important thing is that we’ve done something serious and beautiful in recent years, we’ll continue on our path.

“I always say there are two transfer campaigns, one to keep the champions and most important players, which we’ve always been very good at, and one to buy.

“[Nikola] Milenkovic, Chiesa and Simeone will stay here. We’ll do our best even if it’s a crazy market. We won’t sell them though because the spine is important and we want to keep it.”
