Liverpool and Manchester United ‘must pay £62million for Italy attacker’

Suitors of Fiorentina starlet Federico Chiesa will be asked to pay £62million to land the young attacker.

Manchester United and Liverpool have both been linked with the winger, who made a stellar impression at the Artemio Franchi last season.

Just 20, Chiesa has shot to prominence and is already a full Azzurri international.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport (H/T talkSPORT) La Viola are raising their asking price for the whizkid, whom they are desperate to keep hold of this summer.

Chelsea and Manchester City have also been mooted as potential destinations should Chiesa push to move.
