Competition For Chelsea as PL Rivals Launch €100m Offer For 23 Year Old Transfer Target

Liverpool have made a hefty €100 million bid for Federico Chiesa, who has been linked with Chelsea, according to Italian daily La Repubblica (h/t Mirror). Juventus, on the other hand, has rejected their offer for the 23-year-old.

Chiesa, a Fiorentina youth system product, is regarded as one of Serie A's most promising young wingers. The attacker joined for Juventus last summer after making a strong impact with his boyhood club since breaking into the first squad in 2016/17.

Chiesa signed a two-year loan deal with the club, which will be extended next summer.

In a lackluster season, the Juventus star was one of their finest performances. Following that, the 23-year-old was outstanding for Italy, helping them win the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament and earning a spot in the Team of the Tournament.

Chiesa, a generational talent, has experience on his side and should continue to improve in the future. As a result, it should come as no surprise that two of Europe's greatest teams have made approaches to sign him. In the same time, given how brilliantly he performed last season and at the Euros, Juventus' attitude on the winger is unsurprising.

It'll be interesting to see if Chelsea or Liverpool respond with better offers for the Italian international, or if this was just a one-off approach to test the waters.
