According to report via the Sun, Chelsea are leading the race in signing highly rated Italian winger Federico Chiesa in January when the transfer window opens.

Chelsea new manager Maurizio Sarri is looking to bolster his attacking depth and has already identified one of the men he is looking to sign, but he faces plenty of competition for the Fiorentina star.

Juventus had a bid of £50 million turned down by Fiorentina over the summer but are expected to return with a higher offer once the window reopens, per the report.

Chiesa has come through the ranks at Fiorentina and emerged as one of Italy’s brightest young talents.

The 20-year-old has scored one goal in two games this season, after scoring six in 38 last season.

He has already amassed 74 first-team appearances for Fiorentina and been capped seven times at international level by Italy, although he is yet to score for his country.

There’s no doubting he has huge potential, and Fiorentina may struggle to keep hold of him if some of Europe’s big spenders come calling.
