Premier League teams showing interest in Chiesa, says Fiorentina chief

Fiorentina chief executive officer Joe Barone has suggested that there are clubs in England that are showing interest in the services of winger Federico Chiesa.

Chiesa, who started his career in Fiorentina’s youth teams, was promoted to the first team in July 2016 and has progressed in the Serie A since.

The Italian got his international debut in March 2018 and has scored seven goals while assisting five others in 26 appearances this season.

Chiesa’s style of football has impressed many coaches. A report claims that his style persuaded United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to send his senior scout to watch his next performance.

While Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso later suggested that Chiesa could stay, Barone has now outlined that he will weigh up the interest in the player when the time comes.

“Chiesa is a Fiorentina player,” Barrone said.

“There are clubs knocking at the door for Chiesa, some of them who speak English.

“We’ll see, for the moment we just need to finish the season and he is very concentrated on doing well for us,” added Barone.
