Inter are getting ready to make an offer for Fiorentina starlet Federico Chiesa, following his slowly deteriorating relationship with the Florence based club, according to a report from Italian media outlet Calciomercato.com today.
The report details how Inter coach Antonio Conte has been studying and following the player for a little while now, both with Fiorentina and the Italian national team, working with manager Gabriele Oriali to decide whether he would be a good fit at the Nerazzurri. Oriali believes he would, trustworthy considering the Nerazzurri manager also said the same about former Sassuolo midfielder Stefano Sensi.
Conte appreciates Chiesa from both a technical and tactical point of view, the report continues, and both Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Sporting Director Piero Ausilio have given the green light to process with the interest. Conte is hoping to speak personally to Enrico Chiesa, Federico’s father, in order to start negotiations well.
Fiorentina want around €50 million for the Italian forward, the report highlights, and Chiesa is keen to leave in order to achieve new goals and push his career forward. The figure can be reached if the Nerazzurri manage to sell Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa for a decent fee, of around €25 million.
