Chelsea is said to have made a big proposal for Italy’s Federico Chiesa, who plays for Juventus. Thomas Tuchel wants to add the winger to his attacking ranks after he was one of the star players at Euro 2020.
Chelsea has offered Juventus €100 million to sign Chiesa, according to Christian Falk of BILD. The Bianconeri, on the other hand, have refused to begin negotiations and have put a stop to the sale of the Italian this summer.
Bayern Munich is also said to be interested in signing Chiesa, although Juventus is unlikely to change its mind. Massimiliano Allegri regards the player as an important element of the team’s future aspirations.
Chiesa had a breakout 2020-21 season for Juventus, culminating in a spectacular Euro 2020 performance that helped Italy win the tournament. His efforts earned him a spot on the tournament’s best team.

Chiesa’s addition to the squad will aid with goal scoring, as the winger is capable of both creating and scoring goals. For Juventus, he finished the 2020-21 season with 15 goals and 12 assists in all competitions. Chelsea will gain greatly from his versatility, as he will be able to play on either wing.

Chelsea will have to search elsewhere if Juventus refuses to sell.
Chelsea has also been linked with a loan move for Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann, as the Catalan giants aim to save costs.
It’ll be interesting to see who the Blues sign this summer.
I understand Chelsea are preparing a “BIG offer” to check out and challenge Dortmund’s “he will stay here next season”.
The understanding is that Dortmund won’t say no to 175 million euro
