Fiorentina executive Joe Barone spoke about Inter target Federico Chiesa and if he’ll leave the club in the summer in an interview with Italian media outlet yesterday.

“Our will is to create an ambitious club, who can compete and obtain satisfaction, who can become an arrival point and not a starting point for players. Then everyone is free to make their own choices, we aren’t forcing anyone to stay, we want players who are happy to stay in Florence, to grow in Florence and try to achieve important goals with Fiorentina.”

Finally, Barone spoke about whether Chiesa will sign a contract renewal with the club.

“At the moment everything is unfortunately suspended, so you can only see and talk when it’s all over. The president, however, was very clear.”

Inter and Juventus are both incredibly keen to sign the 22-year-old talismanic forward, who is contracted to the Viola until 2022. Chiesa has made 26 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2117 minutes. In that time, he has scored seven goals and provided five assists.

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso wants to keen the 22-year-old Italian in Florence and is working to offer the player a new contract with higher wages, in order to convince him to stay with the Viola.

Inter are also interested in another Fiorentina star, Italian midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli. The 23-year-old, however, signed a new contract with the club before Christmas and wants to stay with them for the future.
