Berardi or Orsolini to replace Chiesa?

Fiorentina are reportedly looking at the possibilities to sign Domenico Berardi or Riccardo Orsolini, should Federico Chiesa move on.

The possible sale of Chiesa this summer has reportedly prompted Fiorentina to look for a high-quality replacement.

Chiesa has been linked to giants in Italy and abroad in recent months and patron Rocco Commisso admitted he’s willing to listen to the right offers.

La Repubblica claims the Viola will try to bring Berardi to the Artemio Franchi and could offer 21-year-old winger Riccardo Sottil in return.

Berardi is a valuable asset at the Mapei Stadium and continued to impress with 14 goals and 10 assists in his 31 League games in 2019-20.

The report claims Bologna winger Orsolini, who finished the campaign on eight goals and eight assists in Serie A, would cost less than Berardi and therefore would be a more plausible option for Commisso’s side.

But the Rossoblu could still ask for more than €20m to let the 23-year-old move this summer.
