Merseyside giants Liverpool have their eyes on highly rated Juventus winger Federico Chiesa according to the newest reports from the media in Italy. The specific report from Calciomercato disclosed that the Reds are considering the idea of making a move for the Italian international in the near future.
Despite being one of the biggest teams in England, it’s almost certain that Liverpool won’t have a free run at Chiesa, who’s the son of retired Italian international attacker Enrico Chiesa.
Chiesa, 24, came through the youth system at Fiorentina before he made his first team bow for the Italian Serie A club. He joined Juventus on loan in October 2020 and the Old Lady have the obligation to sign him to a permanent deal next summer. Chiesa signed for Juventus on a two-year loan deal last summer with the obligation to make the transfer a permanent one.
Italian attacker Chiesa has been a decent source of goals since he became a Juventus player last year. He has averaged almost a goal in three games for the Old Lady in addition to having a little over a goal contribution in two games. Chiesa has 17 goals and 12 assists in 56 games at Juventus.
Chiesa enhanced his reputation as one of the best young attackers in European football at the Euro 2020 tournament this summer as he helped Italy to see off England in the final. The Juventus man was one of the best players on the pitch in the final which ended in a 1-1 draw at the end of 120 minutes to pave way for penalties. Luke Shaw and Leonardo Bonucci were the goalscorers for England and Italy respectively during the final either side of the interval. Juventus defender Bonucci scored in the second half to erase the England advantage from Shaw at the start of the first half. During penalty shootout, Italy beat England 3-2 to win the tournament.
