Liverpool have to beat Napoli in race for £35m Fiorentina star

Serie A giants Napoli are ready to splash £35million on Liverpool target Federico Chiesa.

Napoli were reportedly interested in a summer swoop for the Fiorentina star, but the Italian club were reluctant to part with the 19-year-old forward.

Liverpool were also keeping close tabs on Chiesa and Jurgen Klopp hasn’t given up hope of luring him to England.

However, according to the Corriere dello Sport, Napoli are also not giving up their pursuit and are readying a January move.

President Aurelio De Laurentiis is determined to bring Chiesa to the San Paolo and is willing to offer up to £35m.
