Chelsea are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Italy international Emanuel Vignato.

The 19-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Italy.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Chelsea.


Frank Lampard has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is admirer of Vignato and believes he can get the most out of the Italy international.

Emanuel Vignato has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Calciomercato, “Last summer, Emanuel Vignato was linked to several top clubs after an impressive season at Chievo. However, the 19-year-old ended up staying at the club, now in Serie B, but a move could once again be on the cards for the youngster. As reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport’s Nico Schira, the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Inter and Milan are interested in the midfielder’s services. In other words, there is tough competition for his signature, though the price tag could be relatively affordable. Representatives from the Stamford Bridge side were present during Salernitana-Chievo two weeks ago to get a closer look of Vignato, per the reporter. However, it remains to be seen if Lampard’s men will make any further moves for the player.”


It would take a huge offer from Chelsea to prise the 19-year-old midfielder from Chievo.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Chelsea.

How strong that interest is and whether Chelsea will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
