Being the footballer son of a former professional can be tough. And yet Federico Chiesa has managed to step out of the shadow of his father Enrico and is becoming a respected footballer in his own right, at the very club his dad once graced.
So meteoric is his rise that the winger already has 11 Italy caps to his name, and though adored he is adored at the Artemio Franchi, some feel Chiesa has already outgrown Fiorentina.
The 21-year-old is certainly a man in demand. Viola President Mario Cognigni said they received a number of offers they refused to even entertain, with Napoli owner Aurelio de Laurentiis admitting they bid €50 million for the winger.
He doesn't think he's worth the many millions clubs have valued him at, but the offers seem to be going nowhere.
He is a confident footballer, one that can scare full-backs faced with him one on one. He is an excellent dribbler, comfortable with both feet and on either wing.
It is no wonder he has garnered interest from clubs home and abroad, but a move may not be the best thing for him. At least not to Juventus, with whom he has been heavily linked.
Chiesa need look no further than the example of his former teammate Federico Bernardeschi. After impressing in his final season with Fiorentina he made the €40 million move to Juventus.
Sure, he has got some winners medals with the move, as Juve won the league and cup double, but he started only seven Serie A games last season.
In the same position this summer was Simone Verdi, who eventually made the move to Napoli. Though not as young as the other two it is his first big move having failed to make the grade as a youth at Milan.
He has had injury problems, but even when fit finds himself behind Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon in the pecking order. Chiesa would likely be in the same position should he make the move to Naples.
Inter have been looking for a winger to put on the right, having showing interest in Milan's Suso. They have signed former Lazio winger Keita Balde on loan from Monaco, and the Senegalese has shown impressive form of late and his future may directly correlate to Chiesa's.
Roma have their own talented young wingers to nurture, with Cengiz Under and Justin Kluivert in position to reach the upper echelons of Italian and world football.
That leaves clubs abroad with Premier League clubs Liverpool and Chelsea reportedly interested.
A move to Chelsea actually makes sense with wingers Willian and Pedro ageing, both over 30-years-old.
Maurizio Sarri will know his talents well, but was notorious during his time with Napoli for being stubborn in rotating players. Moreover, he may be aware of the fates of former Serie A wingers Mohamed Salah and Juan Cuadrado when they went to Stamford Bridge.
That said, regardless of their respective failures in West London both have gone on to enjoy successful careers. The career of a footballer is short and players want to win, which sometimes that means moving.
One player who may wonder 'what if' is Domenico Berardi. Once described by Giancarlo Antognoni as "the young Baggio of this generation" he was always within the clutches of Juventus while at Sassuolo, first through co-ownership and then available via a low buy-back clause. But he never played for the Old Lady, instead fighting mostly for mid table positions with little chance of ever making such a move.
But even back then, Berardi showed far more promise than Chiesa has. While Chiesa has amazing potential, he may not in the position to fully live up to the pressure and expectation a €60m-plus move might bring. The six goals and five assists he got last season may have to reach double figures like it did for Bernardeschi and Verdi before their blockbuster moves.
At Fiorentina he is guaranteed over 30 league games a season. Given the chance to grow, to make mistakes and enjoy being the main man.
Chiesa once said he wishes to be "Fiorentina what Francesco Totti has been for Roma." A pipe dream perhaps in the world of modern football, but if it sees him stay at Fiorentina in the near future he should strive to be Totti just a little while longer.
