Liverpool is actively seeking potential players to bolster their performance in the upcoming season. With the imminent departure of Roberto Firmino, who will not renew his contract with the Reds, the club is on the lookout for a worthy replacement.
According to Italian newspaper “Gazzeta dello Sport,” Liverpool is considering signing Italian star Federico Chiesa, who plays for Juventus. The 25-year-old forward was a standout player at the 2020/21 Euro Cup and is one of the main players in the Italian Serie A. Despite suffering from several injuries this season, Chiesa is expected to return to full fitness soon.
Reports from the British media confirm Liverpool’s interest in Chiesa and state that the club is willing to invest 38 million euros in the Italian player. However, this amount is less than what Juventus paid to Fiorentina for the striker, which was around 42.5 million euros. It remains to be seen whether this offer will be enough to persuade the Old Lady to let go of Chiesa.
Until a few weeks ago, Liverpool was considered one of the front-runners to sign midfielder Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. However, the situation changed when English media reported that the Reds had pulled out of the negotiations, which was later confirmed by Jurgen Klopp.
The reason behind this decision is the club’s desire to sign more than one player, given the need to bring in two to three players in the midfield, which was a weak point for the team this season. In addition to the central midfield, Liverpool also needs to revamp their attack and defense.
Chiesa is a high-quality player and a valuable addition to the English team’s future, provided the negotiations materialize. With the transfer window fast approaching, Liverpool is expected to finalize their plans and pursue potential targets aggressively.
In conclusion, Liverpool’s interest in Federico Chiesa reflects the club’s determination to strengthen their squad for the next season. While the amount being offered for the Italian star may not be enough, Liverpool’s willingness to invest in new players bodes well for the club’s future. Fans eagerly await to see who Liverpool will sign to bolster their chances of success in the upcoming season.
