IcChelseanews Opinion –
Chiesa is proven at the highest level of the game, has the ability to play in a number of positions, is a man that is made for the big games, and if he wants to come to the Premier League, we could be the ideal move to make.
The only problem with his potential arrival is that he is a starter, he will want to play every week, play every minute of every match and will not want to be backup.
But he could be a great signing for the right money.
