Tuttosport: Fiorentina set €70m asking price for Chiesa but Milan have swap deal hope

By Oliver Fisher -

Fiorentina have set their asking price very high for winger Federico Chiesa, a report claims, but Milan may be able to bring it down.

La Nazione reported earlier today that Chiesa’s future must be followed with interest as Milan are not only thinking about him as a target, but are determined to make a move under Stefano Pioli’s orders.

Chiesa is not interested in foreign destinations despite Manchester United insisting, so the player is seriously considering a Milan switch. Fiorentina have no intention of giving discounts on the Italy international, but they have got Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram in their sights to replace him.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan have set their sights on Chiesa, but it will not be easy to get him both due to the intense competition and above all due to the high demands of Fiorentina.

Their owner and president Rocco Commisso has given the player the green light to find a new team, but asks for €70million to let him go.

The paper adds though that it is believed La Viola could accept a counterpart to lower the cash sum required, with Lucas Paqueta a player that interests them.
