Pete O’Rourke, the journalist, reckons Liverpool can set their sights on Federico Chiesa in the transfer window of summer. Amidst the dropping form of Mohamed Salah, the Reds might be looking at the Italian player as an option to improve that position.
The winner of Euro 2020 is a talented player but an ACL injury found him out of action for most of the present campaign and four other consequent injuries small injuries imply that the game-time stood hampered. The young player has 19 goals and 16 in every competition for Juventus for 69 appearances and had been an important part of the Italian team that won the Euros 2020. No doubt Chiesa could be an excellent understudy at the same time, a player who could challenge Mohamed Salah for his place in the starting eleven.
O’Rourke weighed in on the potential pursuit of the attacker of Liverpool and said that may be on simmer, he might have Premier League clubs, such as Liverpool looking at him and ascertaining if they could capitalize on the financial situation of Juventus. Juventus are finding themselves in financial turmoil since the club reeled from a 15-point deduction by FIGC after a probe into the past transfer dealings of the club. This could have forced them to do with the sake of the top players and that’s where Liverpool comes into play.
Chiesa has signed a contract at the Old Lady until 2025 but soon found himself out of the Allianz Stadium. But the Reds could check out other avenues, too. Liverpool has steam full of players who are prone to injury and adding more will not necessarily negate that issue. Furthermore, Salah, even with a little dip in form is one of the top players for Liverpool and will keep getting in the goals as soon as the team finds a balance in the midfield and he gets a better service.
