Liverpool considering move for in-demand Italian forward

November 7, 2018

Liverpool are reportedly ready to rival Manchester United and Chelsea in the transfer race to sign Italian winger Federico Chiesa.

According to reports in Italy, the Merseyside Reds are being rumoured with a move for the Fiorentina forward, who is once again being tipped to depart for big money in the nearby future.

Recent reports suggested that the Blues were in ‘pole position’ to secure the services of the player, however, Napoli and Serie A champions Juventus have also been in the running.

The Italian giants were believed to have had a bid turned down for the player over the summer, however, it is yet to be seen if they will go back in for him during the January or next summer transfer window.

Italy international is not the only Italian Liverpool have their sights set on. Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella has also been rumoured with a switch to Anfield as a transfer target and is believed to be valued at £35 million.

Both Inter Milan and AC Milan and Tottenham are believed to be interested in signing of Barella.
