Chiesa on radar of Bayern, Liverpool

TRANSFER TALK: Italian reports claim several of Europe's giants keen on Euro 2020 breakout star

July 14, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
The former Fiorentina starlet, now on loan at Juventus, impressed quite a few people with his displays for the Azzurri as Italy went on to win Euro 2020.

One huge benefit of big tournaments like the recently completed Euro 2020 championship is that it allows clubs all across Europe to take a closer look at players who may not have been previously on their radar. Simultaneously, it also allows players to put themselves on display to potentially garner interest and engineer a big money move to a bigger club.

According to reports from Italy, namely, one player that is apparently getting a bit of attention from some European giants is none other than Federico Chiesa. The former Fiorentina starlet was arguably one of the stand-out performers for the Azzurri as they won their first major title since the 2006 World Cup and their first Euro title since 1968. Chiesa, who's currently on loan to Juventus from the Viola after signing in fall 2020, had a solid debut season for the Bianconeri, where he scored 14 goals and provided eight assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.

Two teams that are reportedly especially keen are Liverpool and Bayern Munich, winners of the 2019 and 2020 Champions League tournaments respectively. 

However, if anyone thinks that the Reds or die Roten would have a realistic shot, they'll need to think again. Not surprisingly, Juventus have no desire to sell. And even if the price is right, La Vecchia Signora can't. That's because of the terms of the deal they signed with the Viola, which bars them from selling the player until they've signed him on a permanent deal.

Chiesa's loan deal technically expires next June, when the Bianconeri will be obligated to buy him outright. As per the terms of the contract, Juventus, who failed to win the Scudetto last season for the first time in a decade, will be required to pay Fiorentina €60 million over the course of three years. The Bianconeri first paid about €3 million for his first season (2020/21), €7 million for the second season (2021/22), and finally will be billed €40 million plus about €10 million in other incentives in 2022.
