Chelsea told Tonali ‘the best in Italy’ by Italian legend Pirlo ahead of possible summer deal
Chelsea transfer target Sandro Tonali has been widely dubbed ‘the next Andrea Pirlo’, and is the best in Italy, it has been claimed.
We have been talked about alot during the coronavirus, with the club expected to do some transfer business in the summer and improve on what they currently have.
We are seeking to get back into the same level of Liverpool and are expected to spend some serious money on improving the side, especially as Frank Lampard could lose some of his squad who are running out of contract.
And they have been linked with a move for Tonali, who has been setting the Seria A alight over the past few seasons, so much so, that Andrea Pirlo has come out and claimed he is the best player in the Italian League.
“He is very good but he is different from me on the pitch,” Pirlo told Italian publication dello Sport.
“He has everything to be a champion but he is more a midfielder for a two-man midfield.
“He could already play for a great team; he is the best in this league.”
Brescia owner Massimo Cellino has previously claimed Liverpool have spoken to him about the three-cap Italy international, while United were last year linked with a swoop to sign the wonderkid.
“In my view, he’d be better off remaining with Brescia,” the former Leeds United owner said.
“The other day, his agent and his parents were telling me about this €50m evaluation. I replied that for me he is worth €300m, which means I don’t want to sell.”
