Another Italian source in the form of Corriere Fiorentino also covered a story on Chiesa yesterday. In their report, Liverpool are the only English club mentioned, who want to sign the youngster this summer. As per Corriere Fiorentino, he is rated at around €60million/€70million.
Chiesa made his senior international debut earlier this year in March and so far, he has played 4 games for Italy.
The young starlet is naturally a right winger but he can effectively play anywhere in the attack, even as a center forward. In the last league campaign for Fiorentina, he made 36 appearances, scored 6 goals and provided 9 assists.
