Interest is rising in Juventus star Federico Chiesa with Liverpool and Real Madrid among the clubs chasing him.

The 25-year-old forward is one of Europe’s brightest players, having impressed with club and country in recent times and there are still high expectations for him in the future.

This is despite a long-term injury he suffered last season which kept him out of action for nearly a year and many across Europe still feel he can reach the levels expected of him.

Now, there might be a clash to get his signature in the future as Liverpool and Real Madrid are willing to spend big on the Italian winger.

Klopp and Liverpool are big Chiesa fans

It’s reported that Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of Chiesa and is keen to bring him to Anfield with the player’s directness and explosiveness a big factor in the interest.

Last summer, it was said that £53 million would be enough to tempt Juventus into a sale of the player but that sum may be higher now given Chiesa’s return to the team.

The Reds are looking to add an attacking talent despite an abundance of quality in that position with players such as Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Dias, Roberto Firmino and new signing Cody Gakpo already in the team.

Liverpool will face competition from Real Madrid, who are also looking to improve on the wings having lacked in that area over the course of the season.

Karim Benzema leads the line with Vinicius Jr. supporting him down the left side but Fichajes suggest they are looking at a move for Chiesa to improve their options even further.

Both clubs are eager to see how Chiesa performs for Juventus following his return to fitness and are optimistic they can get him at some point in the near future.
