Liverpool transfers – £86m Federico Chiesa bid rejected and AC Milan target – Liverpool Echo


Federico Chiesa


Repubblica (via Daily Mail )


Reports claim Liverpool had an £86million bid rejected by Juventus for Italian forward Federico Chiesa.

Chiesa was one of the stars of Euro 2020 as he burst onto the scene with goals against Austria and Spain.

Chiesa is currently on loan at Juventus but the Italian side must sign him from Fiorentina when his two-year loan deal runs out next year.

Chiesa is 23-years-old and, following his performances in the European Championships, he is likely to be on the radar of clubs across Europe.

Franck Kessie


Corriere dello Sport (via Sempre Milan )


Following the departure of Gini Wijnaldum this summer, Jurgen Klopp is reportedly on the eye out for a new midfielder.

And Liverpool continue to be linked with 24-year-old AC Milan star Franck Kessie.

However, reports coming out of Italy may serve a blow to the reported pursuit of the Ivorian as Corriere dello Sport report Milan are making it a priority to keep Kessie.

Milan have already lost Hakan Calhanoglu and Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer, and having qualified for the Champions League for the first time since 2014, they will be desperate to avoid losing further key players this summer.
