Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa is reportedly a transfer target for the Blues, with Brazilian winger Willian expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season after contract talks with the club stalled.
Chiesa has insisted his focus is solely on Fiorentina, despite being linked with a summer transfer to Chelsea.
The 22-year-old believes he needs time to become a ‘complete player’ before a transfer to a big club.
“There are no negotiations, there is Fiorentina,” he told Corriere dello Sport (via Football Italia).
“I do not have an agent, so I speak to the club and my father (former Fiorentina and Parma striker Enrico Chiesa) is always by my side. He is like my personal assistant!
“We never even considered hiring an agent, but I don’t know if that will continue in future.
“The rumour linking me with Francesco Totti’s agency was fake news and he was the first to contact the club to clarify that.
“I’ve spoken so much to the President, Joe Barone and Daniele Prade over the last year, but I am concentrated only on the present.
“I focus on working every day, achieving immediate objectives, first and foremost securing safety. We just hope to get back to playing and the rest will follow.
“My objective is to improve in general, not just on a technical level, because I am the first to acknowledge that I need to become a more complete player.”
Chiesa has six goals and seven assists in 26 games across all competitions this season.
