With a few days left between now and the end of the transfer window, Federico Chiesa continues to be one of the names dominating the headlines.
The winger has been linked with both AC Milan and Juventus extensively throughout the window, though at the moment it seems neither team are closing in on his signature.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s latest for Sky (via MilanLive), Chiesa does want to leave Fiorentina before the window ends and club president Rocco Commisso is willing to let him go, but the asking price is €60m.
The team leading the race to secure Chiesa is Juventus, who has started concrete contacts in recent days. In fact, Fabio Paratici even made an offer including two counterparts in Mattia De Sciglio and Daniele Rugani, but Fiorentina refused. The only counterpart they would accept is centre-back Merih Demiral, whom Juventus do not intend to sell.
At the moment the parties have not found an agreement. The Juventus management must try to sell their Rugani and De Sciglio to raise the money to invest for Chiesa, while the 22-year-old would accept a move to Turin.
