Juventus set to sign Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa
When it comes to the transfer market, Juventus are simply one of the best in the business.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Juventus are set to sign Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Chiesa made 113 appearances across all competitions for Fiorentina, scoring 22 goals and supplying 21 assists in return.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Italy. As a member of Italy national football team Chiesa won 13 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Juventus.
Juventus have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Federico Chiesa would provide a good variety to Juventus’s attack.
According to Calciomercato (via Tuttosport), “Juventus haven’t lost hope of signing Federico Chiesa this summer, despite Fiorentina’s stance on the matter. La Viola value the player at no less than €70m, which is considered too much by the Bianconeri. However, to decrease the price tag, Juve are willing to include Demiral and Pellegrini in the negotiations.”

Fiorentina are reluctant to let Chiesa go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Signing the 21-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Maurizio Sarri.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Juventus.
How strong that interest is and whether Juventus will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
