Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade has insisted that Fiorentina do not need to sell any of their players amid interest from several clubs in a number of their players.

There has been a great deal of interest shown in Italian international Federico Chiesa with both Inter and Juventus long term admirers of the highly rated 22-year-old, who is one of the best Italian talents out there at the moment.

Reports in the media have suggested that Fiorentina value Chiesa in the region of €70 million and others have suggested they hope to be able to include a €100 million release clause if they can convince him to sign a new contract with them.

“What the president says is the law, we do not want to let anyone leave. Fiorentina must be an end point for players not a starting point,” Prade explained in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia earlier on today.

He then went on to reveal that it is becoming clear to people that Fiorentina are wanting to challenge for success and he reiterated that Fiorentina do not have to sell their players.

“Everyone is now realising that there has been a change of direction and that we want to become competitive. Fiorentina is strong and healthy but like everyone else we will have to be careful with budgets.

“Fortunately, we do not need to sell off any of our players, good players will always have important prices.”
