TS: Milan prioritise Fiorentina winger for new project

By Oliver Fisher -

Fiorentina star Federico Bernardeschi is everybody’s cup of tea at the moment. The talented 22-year-old winger is having the best season in his career having already netted seven goals in all competitions so far this season.

The Italian star has been given a chance to show all his potential since when Paulo Sousa has moved him from the right winger position to a more offensive role which allows him to create more goal chances for his teammates as well as scoring more goals.

An incredible number of reports over the last few weeks have been linking the Italy International with a January move to Chelsea. The South-West London club and Fiorentina are on very good terms after Marcos Alonso’s summer move to the Stamford Bridge and being Antonio Conte a long time admirer of Bernardeschi, the interest of the Blues for the talented winger comes as no surprise.

Trouble is, Bernardeschi is also chased by Inter, Juventus and AC Milian. According to a report of Tuttosport, the rossoneri have made the Fiorentina star their priority summer target as new Chinese owners are willing to invest big money to take the club back to the top of Italy and Europe.

Chinese buyers are expected to complete the club’s takeover on the 13th of December and both Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli are already planning the next two transfer windows. If Bernardeschi doesn’t go to Chelsea in January, he can become a concrete transfer target for AC Milan next summer.

The player’s price-tag is now in the region of €30million, but his market value is definitely going to raise over the next few months.
