Fiorentina open door for Chelsea to sign Chiesa this summer
Chelsea have been given a boost in their chances of signing Federico Chiesa after a Fiorentina chief admitted that they wouldn’t stop the forward from leaving.
The Premier League seasons is surely just a few weeks away from being re-started and finished ahead of the summer window, which will mean that clubs like we will be able to focus on working on the side.
And that means that Frank Lampard will know if his side are in the Champions League spots, and will also know how much money he will be able to spend when the transfer window opens up.
And although he has an impressive array of talent, there is a feeling in the media that the boss needs to spend some serious money and add a striker to the front-line, as Tammy ABraham will not be able to do everything himself next season.
And that has led to speculation in the media suggesting that he has been eyeing up a deal foe one of the best young strikers in the game, Chiesa.
Chiesa is being monitored by several top clubs across Europe, with United and Chelsea also facing competition from Juventus and Inter Milan, as he continues to impress over in Seria A.
And while Fiorentina chief Joe Barone insisted the club don’t want to see the 22-year-old versatile forward leave the club, they also won’t force him to stay: “At the moment, unfortunately, everything is blocked, so we can only see and talk when everything is over,” he told Calciomercato when asked about Chiesa’s future.
“Everyone is free to make their own choices. We don’t force anyone to stay, we want players happy to be in Florence, to grow in Florence and to try to achieve important goals with Fiorentina.”
