Viola President convinced Chiesa

Daniele Prade has claimed Federico Chiesa has been convinced to stay at Fiorentina by President Rocco Commisso and coach Beppe Iachini.

The winger has been linked with a move away from the Artemio Franchi and the Viola have done all they can to keep the Italy international.

The sporting director Prade has revealed that the starlet has been convinced by the ambition at the club and claimed their investments in January has proved it.

“We have to think about the will of all parties involved,” Prade said at a press conference. “Federico has changed thanks to Commisso and Iachini.

“We want a competitive team and Chiesa can see that. The relationship is of complicity and sharing, we will meet soon. As soon as the serenity arrives in terms of results.

“We are working for the future. In January, we made some important investments.”

Fiorentina brought Patrick Cutrone back to Italy from the Premier League and added Alfred Duncan from Sassuolo, Kevin Agudelo and Christian Kouame from Genoa and Igor from SPAL.

They also snapped up the Napoli target Sofyan Amrabat from Hellas Verona, who will arrive this summer.
