Federico Chiesa is a name that has been linked with AC Milan on numerous occasions in the last couple of days, as the Rossoneri continue their hunt for reinforcements to strengthen the team at Stefano Pioli’s disposal.
Florence-based paper La Nazione (via milannews.it) has been insisting for several days that Milan are strongly interested in the Fiorentina attacker. This was also confirmed by their journalist Stefano Cecchi in an interview with Radio Sportiva yesterday.
However, as reported by Fabrizio Romano for Calciomercato.com, there are currently no confirmations about an advanced negotiation between Milan and Fiorentina regarding Chiesa.
The Italian international wants to stay in Serie A and while there is the total approval of the Rossoneri management for Chiesa, there is one important detail that is preventing a deal from happening.
The detail is Fiorentina’s evaluation of the player. In June Chiesa asked for 80 million euros for Chiesa when Inter approached him. The figure has not dropped that much, which is why Milan is currently not considering the idea of making a serious attempt.
