AC Milan are not yet out of the running for Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa and in fact appear more serious than Juventus in their pursuit, it is claims.
Chiesa is a name that continues to be linked as a potential dream signing to fully complete the squad for the season ahead after what has been a busy shortened summer window.
Gianluca Di Marzio in his latest for Sky attempted to pour cold water on the Milan links though by claiming that the Rossoneri have never even asked for information about the 22-year-old.
However, Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) take a decidedly different stance by claiming that Chiesa’s future is still to be resolved as Juve have only made unconvincing enquiries.
The player is not experiencing a calm situation at the moment with everything so up in the air, and the paper claims that Milan are lurking in the background.
If Paolo Maldini has an opportunity, he will try to seize it. The idea is to try secure a deal with an operation similar to the Sandro Tonali one – a high paid loan with option to buy.
