This season, Chiesa has scored 7 goals and provided 5 assists in 26 appearances for Fiorentina.

The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Italy. As a member of Italy national football team, Chiesa won 17 caps and he scored one goal.

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

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

There is no doubt that Chiesa will take Manchester United’s attack to a different level.

According to the report, “Manchester United have been tracking Fiorentina attacker Federico Chiesa this season. Le 10 Sport says Juventus and Inter Milan are also interested in Chiesa, who is valued at around £54million. But United have already sent scouts over to Italy to watch the striker in action. Chiesa came through the youth ranks at Fiorentina, joining the club way back in 2007 and spent nine years in the academy. His 17 international caps for Italy means he is just five short of his dad Enrico, who scored seven from his 22 games for the Azzurri between 1996 and 2001. The Fiorentina star has two years still left to run on his current contract but his current employers are trying to convince him to sign a new deal.”

Fiorentina would be wise to keep the Italy international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Manchester United.

Manchester United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see whether Manchester United will make their move during the summer transfer window.
