According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato via Daily Mail, Chelsea are set to make a ‘monster’ £84million bid to sign Juventus forward Federico Chiesa.
The 24 year old forward scored the winner in Juventus’ 1-0 victory over Chelsea in Turin but failed to shine at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea demolished the Italian side 4-0.
Chiesa is currently on loan at Juventus from Fiorentina but the Old Lady have an agreement to sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a huge admirer of Chiesa and believes the Italian international can strengthen the Chelsea squad.
Chiesa caught the attention of Tuchel over the summer after putting in some exceptional performances for Italy which saw him make the Team of The Tournament as they went on to win Euro 2020.
He is widely admired for his explosiveness, versatility and the ability to use both feet to high efficiency. He has scored three goals and assisted three in 15 games this season.
German side Bayern Munich are also reportedly interested in signing the Juventus forward.
