Federico Chiesa drops Chelsea transfer hint sending Blues fans into meltdown


Juventus’ starlet Federico Chiesa has sparked fresh rumours of a move to Chelsea as the Italian has followed some of the club’s stars on Instagram.

The winger has been linked with a move to Thomas Tuchel’s side over the summer, and rumours of an £84million move have reemerged.

And Chiesa was at Stamford Bridge in the week as his Juve side got battered 4-0 by the Blues.

Chiesa currently follows five members of the squad: Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic, Saul Niguez, Kai Havertz, and N’golo Kante.

The 24-year-old also follows the official Chelsea account as well as Stamford Bridge alumni Eden Hazard.

Roman Abramovich has already dipped his hands into his pockets for a top attacker from Italy this season when he acquired Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.

And Calciomercato are claiming that Chiesa is top of Tuchel’s wishlist.

The Italian is still technically a Fiorentina player having joined the Old Lady on a two-year loan deal with a £40million obligation to buy in 2022.

Chiesa has continued his good form from Euro 2020, where the 24-year-old was central to Italy’s success at Wembley in June into the 21/22 season.

Chelsea put Juve to the sword on Tuesday evening as Tuchel’s side to send them top of the Champions League group.

Chiesa had been the only name on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture in Turin.
