There are many transfer targets in action tonight, but Chiesa might be the biggest story of them all.

Sampdoria count on the Uruguayan to help Fabio Quagliarella out on top, as Antonio Candreva continues at right.

Beppe Iachini must cope without French winger Ribery, but has made space for Jack Bonaventura, Sofyan Amrabat, Gaetano Castrovilli and Cristiano Biraghi in a midfield five, with Chiesa at right.

Fiorentina (3-5-2): Dragowski, Milenkovic, Ceccherini, Caceres; Chiesa, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli, Biraghi; Kouame, Vlahovic
