Premier League: Chelsea are attracted by Federico Chiesa, prepare tempting transfer funds
Chelsea is reportedly preparing large funds to add ammunition to the attack line. The Blues want to bring in Juventus star Federico Chiesa.
Federico Chiesa is actually still on loan at Juventus, to be precise from Fiorentina. However, the move will be made permanent at the end of the season, although Chiesa could be released again soon.
According to Calciomercato , as quoted by The Sun , Thursday (11/25/2021), Chelsea are willing to pay 84 million pounds (Rp 1.59 trillion) to get Chiesa’s signature.
However, Chelsea will face fierce competition from Bayern Munich to sign Chiesa. However, if they are willing to spend that much money, they can excel.
Chelsea manager , Thomas Tuchel, still needs additional ammunition because the front line has not satisfied him even though he already has Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Kai Harvertz.
