Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone has revealed that there is interest from England in Federico Chiesa but has insisted that Chiesa is concentrated on the task at hand at La Viola.

The highly rated 22-year-old Italian national team winger has also been heavily linked with moves to Inter and Juventus in recent months.

“Chiesa is a Fiorentina player. There are clubs knocking on the door for Chiesa, some of them are English,” he remarked in an interview with Milan based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, which appeared in today’s print edition.

“We will see what happens but for the moment we just need to finish the season and he is very concentrated on doing well for us.”

Barone was then quizzed on the future of midfield sensation Gaetano Castrovilli, who, like Chiesa, has also been linked with possible moves to both Inter and Juventus but Barone has poured cold water on the recent speculation in the media.

“As for Gaetano Castrovilli, he still has much to give for us and for Italian football, so he will remain in Florence.”

This season Chiesa has made 26 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored seven goals and provided five assists for his teammates. Castrovilli has meanwhile also made 26 appearances, in which he has scored three goals and tallied two assists.
