Chiesa going nowhere
Fiorentina insist Federico Chiesa will not be leaving the club this summer despite rumours of a possible move to Inter Milan.
The 21-year-old has impressed during three seasons with La Viola and other clubs have started taking note.
He was one shining light in a dismal campaign for Vincenzo Montella’s side, who narrowly avoided relegation after finishing 16th in Serie A.
Chelsea, Juventus and Napoli have all been watching the talented youngster but it seems as though he will be going nowhere in the coming weeks.
A statement on Fiorentina’s official website read: ‘We read continuous news spread by others about the future of Chiesa and where he will play next season.
‘The current owner is keen to point out that Federico is a Fiorentina player tied to the club by a long contract and therefore, as far as we are concerned, Chiesa will play in Florence next year and must be the symbol for the team that will be built.’
