Fiorentina: Chiesa in, Veretout out

Federico Chiesa is in Fiorentina’s squad for the International Champions Cup, but Jordan Veretout has been left out.

Fiorentina are adamant Chiesa will not leave the club this summer, and the forward has been called up for the friendly tournament.

However, Veretout is omitted as Roma and Milan battle it out for the midfielder’s signature.

German Pezzella is also nowhere to be seen, although the defender’s exclusion is due to his recent participation at Copa America with Argentina.

Commisso: I'll change Fiorentina, but...

Rocco Commisso believes he will ‘change things’ for the better at Fiorentina but warns they will only start buying players once they make sales.

Commisso has already made his mark since taking over Fiorentina last month, endearing himself to supporters with his stance on keeping fans’ favourite Federico Chiesa.

Despite his considerable wealth, however, the Italo-American billionaire made it clear he would be playing by the rules.

Milan in Pezzella talks?

Milan have reportedly held talks over a possible deal for Fiorentina defender German Pezzella.

According to Milan News, agent Martin Guastadisegno discussed Pezzella during a meeting with Rossoneri officials on Wednesday.

However, the website warns Fiorentina value the Argentina international at €20m.

The 27-year-old has been a regular for the Viola since arriving for Real Betis in 2017.

Milan are looking for defensive reinforcements after missing out on Ozan Kabak and being seemingly priced out of Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren.

Former Milan, Fiorentina and Italy striker Alberto Gilardino has been named the new Coach of Serie C side Pro Vercelli.

Pro Vercelli, for their part, are one of Italy’s most successful teams, winning seven top-flight titles between 1908 and 1922.

Everybody loves Jordan

Jordan Veretout has become the hot property of the summer transfer window, something Fiorentina fan Giancarlo Rinaldi was really not expecting.

If you asked Fiorentina fans who the most transfer-tempting player in their possession was last season, not many would have put his name top of the list. The majority might have suggested the most obvious - Federico Chiesa - a souped-up Ferrari of a footballer. Others could have pointed you in the direction of their bulldozing defensive 4x4 - Nikola Milenkovic. Few were likely to have taken you towards Jordan Veretout - the reliable but rather unspectacular people-carrier at the back of the showroom.

Gerson headache for Roma

Gerson is causing problems for Roma, as he will only accept a transfer to Flamengo, but the Brazilian club won’t reach the €10m asking price.

According to multiple sources including Sport Mediaset, Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the midfielder has his heart set on Flamengo and will turn down any other destination.

He already has done, rejecting moves to Dynamo Moscow and Genoa over the last couple of weeks.

The issue is that Roma want at least €10m for the 22-year-old and Flamengo are not prepared to pay that sum.

Bartlomiej Dragowski will snub offers from Southampton and Bournemouth if he gets an improved salary at Fiorentina.

The goalkeeper’s star is on the rise after an impressive six-month spell on loan at Empoli.
