Newcastle, Liverpool Take Lead Over PSG in Race for Juve’s Chiesa – Report

Italian powerhouse Juventus has reportedly set a price tag on their talented winger, Federico Chiesa. Several clubs are offering enticing proposals to secure the winger this summer. 

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Juventus wants €60 million from any club desiring to land Chiesa. Although there’s interest, the Italian media outlet notes no party has met the asking price. 

The Italian forward caught the attention of Newcastle, Aston Villa, and Liverpool from the Premier League. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on securing his services.

Newcastle has proposed a €50 million bid to acquire the 25-year-old, signaling their intent to make a marquee signing. Aston Villa have also matched Newcastle’s €50 million offer in their quest to bolster their attack.

Meanwhile, Liverpool has put a lower bid of €40 million on the table. The Reds might recognize Chiesa’s potential impact but are seemingly hesitant to meet Juventus’ valuation.

The Magpies are the only English club in this report that will play UEFA Champions League football next season. As a result, they have the advantage. Furthermore, they’ve already begun dipping their toes in the Italian market by reportedly signing Sandro Tonali

As for PSG, unless they sell Kylian Mbappé, it’s hard to view them as a serious contender. Now if the 24-year-old does leave for Real Madrid, then perhaps the French giants can up their interest.
