Liverpool Chiesa bid rejected
Juventus have reportedly rejected an £86million bid from Liverpool for Italian international attacker Federico Chiesa.
The 23-year-old is technically on loan from Fiorentina at the Allianz Stadium, but an obligation to buy clause means that Juve control his future.
He impressed in his first season at Turin, scoring 15 goals and notching 11 assists in all competitions for his club, before being a regular in the Italy team which won Euro 2020.
His exploits at that tournament, coupled with his performances in Serie A attracted the eye of Liverpool, who are seeking to upgrade their attacking options.
Though Chiesa appears to be their top target, the Reds have some work to do before signing him, with La Repubblica reporting Juve have rejected their opening offer of £86m.
The Italian newspaper goes on to state that returning manager Massimiliano Allegri views Chiesa as ‘non-transferable’, an opinion that has received the backing of club president Andrea Agnelli.
