Chelsea move for Euro 2020 hero rebuffed by Juventus

Chelsea have reportedly been rebuffed by Juventus in their quest to sign winger Federico Chiesa for £85million.

The 23-year-old was one of the players of the tournament at Euro 2020 as he helped Italy win their first European Championship since 1968.

Chiesa is currently halfway through a two-year loan spell in Turin from Fiorentina, with the Old Lady having an obligation to permanently sign him next year.

That deal could be worth as much as £43million, and it has been claimed they have rejected an offer from the Blues almost twice as much as that.

According to Bild journalist Christian Falk, the West Londoners have identified the player as a key target with Thomas Tuchel looking to strengthen his side.
