Liverpool is among several clubs closely monitoring the situation of Juventus winger Federico Chiesa as the upcoming transfer window approaches. The 24-year-old has garnered significant attention since his impressive performances for Italy during the delayed European Championships in 2021, sparking speculation of a potential move away from Turin.

Earlier this year, Liverpool made an ambitious £86 million bid for Chiesa’s services, following his Euro 2020 exploits. However, a transfer failed to materialize, leading the Reds to explore alternative targets. Recent reports indicate that Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp have renewed their interest in Chiesa amid rumors of his discontent at Juventus.

In a recent report by the renowned Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, through Football Italia, it has been disclosed that Chiesa is contemplating a potential departure from the illustrious Allianz Arena. The source suggests that the talented player harbors a sense of being overshadowed, as he yearns for a more prominent role within the club, where he feels his true potential can be fully recognized.

Competition from Newcastle and Bayern Munich

While Liverpool maintains their interest in Chiesa, they face competition from other suitors. Newcastle and Bayern Munich are reported to be actively interested in the Italian winger, with the latter already making initial contact with Chiesa’s representatives. This competition suggests that Chiesa’s potential move is generating considerable attention within the football community.

Juventus’ demands for Chiesa’s transfer fee have reportedly decreased significantly since their initial valuation in 2021. Italian media now suggests a figure ranging from €35 million (£30 million) to €45 million (£38.5 million). This reduced valuation may entice potential suitors to pursue a deal for the winger, considering his talent and potential impact on the field.

Liverpool’s Transfer Plans and Mason Mount Update

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, expressed his expectation of an active transfer market for the club this summer following a disappointing 2022/23 campaign. The Reds have already kick-started their summer business with the signing of World Cup-winning midfielder Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton for an initial fee of £45 million.

While Liverpool aims to strengthen their midfield further, they have seemingly moved on from pursuing a deal for Chelsea’s Mason Mount. Recent developments suggest that Mount, a highly regarded player from Chelsea’s academy, is now leaning towards a potential switch to Manchester United. Consequently, Liverpool has shifted their focus to other targets as they continue their search for midfield reinforcements.

In conclusion, Liverpool’s interest in Federico Chiesa persists as the transfer window looms, with competition from clubs like Newcastle and Bayern Munich. Chiesa’s desire for a more prominent role at Juventus has fueled speculation of a potential move. As Liverpool looks to revamp their squad after a disappointing season, their signing of Alexis Mac Allister signifies their intent. However, they have seemingly moved away from pursuing Chelsea’s Mason Mount, who is now rumored to favor a move to Manchester United. The coming weeks promise to be intriguing as the transfer market unfolds.
