Fiorentina face Chiesa battle

Serie A

Fiorentina could be forced to cash in on starlet Federico Chiesa in January as a host of European sides are said to be keen.

Chiesa has started six of La Viola’s Serie A games this season after breaking into the side last year but the Italian outfit could face a battle to hold on to the 19-year-old.

German giants Bayern Munich and Premier League outfit Liverpool are understood to be keen, while Serie A rivals Juventus and Napoli have also been linked with Chiesa.

Fiorentina want to keep hold of the winger but may find it hard to resist a big offer if one of his suitors decides to firm up their interest with a significant bid in the January window.
