Liverpool Opinion: Chiesa will be a blockbuster signing for the Reds
According to a recent report by the Daily Express, Premier League giants Liverpool are said to have cast their eye on Fiorentina’s Italian international winger Federico Chiesa regarding a possible move for the youngster in the upcoming summer transfer window.
It has been suggested that the prodigious winger is one of many players that manager Jurgen Klopp has shortlisted ahead of what could be a very important season for them.
Liverpool were just edged out by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side to the Premier League title but the champions’ defeat to Spurs in the semifinal of the Champions League set up a thrilling final for Reds fans.
Liverpool were the eventual winners as Mauricio Pochettino’s men pulled off an epic bottle job on the biggest stage. Despite Harry Kane’s premature return from injury, it wasn’t enough to keep the potent Liverpool attack at bay.
While more additions are being planned by the Liverpool hierarchy, whether or not they’re able to beat City to the long-awaited Premier League title next season could decide just how effective their sudden surge of success turns out to be.
Although they already have a fairly stacked side, there are certain areas within the team where a few acquisitions wouldn’t hurt their cause.
Although Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane did well together last season and ended up sharing the Golden Boot, the question of what happens to this side when one of them suffers from an inevitable knock remains up in the air.
The presence of talented players like Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will lessen the burden on Jurgen Klopp’s shoulders but some additional signings are certainly in order.
Moving for a player of the quality and potential of Federico Chiesa is certainly a pretty big statement by this Liverpool side.
His overall wing play is what has made him one of the most exciting young talents of this generation and on the pitch, he doesn’t give any impression of being a 21-year-old.
Supremely composed and collected on the ball, the Italian uses his body well to guard the ball and is more than capable of beating a man or two on his own.

He is a tall player who gets around the pitch with ease and isn’t afraid to put himself about while defending as well. Extremely good at tracking back and helping out the full-back, it would seem like the Italian has the ideal attributes to be a massive hit in the Premier League.
Liverpool’s interest in the player says a lot about his quality and getting this deal through the door at the earliest should be Jurgen Klopp’s number one priority in the summer.
