Jurgen Klopp keen on signing Serie A 19-year-old attacking prodigy

October 13, 2017

Liverpool are interested in signing Fiorentina sensation Federico Chiesa, according to reports.

Chiesa, son of former Italy international Enrico, has impressed since breaking onto the senior scene in Serie A.
The Calciomercato report that the 19-year-old is being considered as a potential signing for Liverpool at some point in the next 12 months.

The forward is fast and skilful, leaving a host of top European clubs interested.

Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan have been touted as potential destinations, as have other Premier League clubs.

The Italian international involved in 37 games from the last season and scored five goals for the club.

The Reds have already signed plenty of attacking players, including Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal, Mohamed Salah from AS Roma and the former Chelsea teenager Domenic Solanke.

The Defensive problems are still the unsettled at The Anfield. The only defender they signed in the summer was Andy Robertson from Hull City.

The Reds were heavily linked with the Saints defender this summer. They were forced to withdraw their interest in the £60m player after they were accused of an illegal approach by Southampton.

In one of his latest interview, Jurgen Klopp said that he was searching an acceptable defensive option, but none of them was better than what Liverpool have now.
