Inter target Federico Chiesa discussed his futures and the many clubs that he has been linked with in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

First, he discussed his father Enrico Chiesa and whether it’s an advantage having Enrico as his agent.

“A lot of people say that having a father who’s done the same job as you is a burden. For me it’s an advantage, a huge advantage. The rigour, the attitude to sacrifice and the education that he and my mother gave me give me incredible strength. My father has never been involved in things on the pitch, but he has always helped me in difficult moments, because he has lived through many as well.”

The Fiorentina talisman suggested that his father wasn’t currently negotiating with any clubs.

“There are no negotiations going on, there’s only Fiorentina. I don’t have an agent, I talk to the team and he’s always by my side. He is my personal assistant! We’ve never considered having an agent. In the future who knows. The rumours that linked me to Totti were fake news, Francesco was the first to clarify it.”

The 22-year-old Italian spoke about the talks he’s had with Fiorentina’s directors and the president Rocco Commisso.

“With the president, with Giuseppe Barone and Pradè in the last year we’ve all talked a lot, the present is the only time I am focused on. I think about everyday work, about immediate objectives, the main one is avoiding relegation. We all hope to return to the game, everything else will come.”

Chiesa touched on how hard he trains and looks to improve and grow as a player.

“My goal is general improvement, not only tactical, I have to complete myself and I am the first to understand it. Sousa, who started me out, but also Pioli, often told me that football is played first and foremost with the head. I, by nature, am inclined not to administer energy, I have a generosity that many times compromises my performances, sometimes I lack a clinical finish in front of goal. I have to improve and still improve, score more regularly, if I want to get closer to my father who scored 138 in Serie A.”

Finally, Chiesa spoke about the many positions that he is able to play.

“I’ve played all the positions. Sousa had me playing in a midfield five. For Piola as an attacking midfielder. Montella deployed me in the front two, for Iachini I’m a right centre forward.”

The 22-year-old Italian forward, who is contracted to the Florence based club until 2022, 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, being one of the Viola’s biggest stars.
