Italian side Fiorentina have put a £62 million pricetag on 20-year-old winger Federico Chiesa in a bid to deter clubs – said to include Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City – from trying to sign him.

Chiesa had a standout season for Fiorentina in 2017/18, which included breaking into the Italy squad. He played in 36 games in Serie A for La Viola, scoring 6 goals and contributing 7 assists.

His performances have alerted a range of top clubs; as well as those mentioned from the Premier League, Serie A sides Napoli and Inter Milan are also said to be interested.

Fiorentina had set a price of £44 million for Chiesa – son of former Italian striker Enrico – back in April, but have now increased it by another £18 million, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.

The club obviously want to keep hold of their star player – at least for another season – but if they were to sell they want top dollar. The pricetag may put off some clubs – Inter Milan, for instance, may not have the cash – but most of those linked to Chiesa will be able to stump up £62 million without any trouble.
