Federico Chiesa has been left out of the Fiorentina squad to face Lecce in Serie A tomorrow night.
Chiesa has been at the centre of intense speculation this week regarding his future at the Tuscan club, amidst speculation he had handed in a transfer request.
However, the winger missed Fiorentina’s 1-0 defeat to Verona last weekend with a thigh injury and the Viola confirmed he was still on the road to recovery.
It was so much as confirmed by coach Vincenzo Montella, who also refused to entertain talk of selling the 22-year-old, at his press conference for the game on Saturday.
He is joined on the treatment table by defender German Pezzella, who has a fractured cheekbone.
