Liverpool are one of the teams interested in Fiorentina’s hotshot forward Federico Chiesa, according to reports in Italy.
Chiesa’ performances have been getting a lot of plaudits from fans and pundits alike and it seems as though Liverpool’s scouts have also been impressed with him.
The 19-year-old has already earned a place in Italy’s U21 squad and there are high hopes for him in his home country.
The teenager is predominantly a right-sided wide player but he can play anywhere across a front three and his pace is a key asset, something which makes him an obvious fit in Liverpool’s system.
Inter Milan and Napoli are also interested in the forward and both will continue to monitor his progress but if he keeps developing at his current rate, it’s only a matter of time before even more clubs come knocking.
The report indicates that Fiorentina know how good the Italain is and therefore they are unlikely to consider any bids below the €40m mark.
