Juventus close to sealing a complex operation for Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa

One of Italy’s long sought after young talents will be moving to Juventus. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Bianconeri are making a move for 22-year-old winger Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina.

Although a last few details remain to be negotiated and sorted, it is understood the deal will go through in time before the transfer window deadline. The specifics of the operation are a little different and complex here.

Apparently, Juventus will take Chiesa on loan for two seasons, paying a loan fee of €2 million for the first and €8 million for the second. And in the third season, contingent on certain clauses, Chiesa could move permanently to Juventus for a €40 million fee on an obligation to buy requirement.

The only issue with that move is Chiesa’s current contract with Fiorentina expires in 2022. And so if Juventus are to trigger the obligation to buy clause, they will need him to sign a new extension with Fiorentina so that the money can legally be transferred to them from Juventus.

Regardless of the footballing side of things, Chiesa will provide a sense of freshness to a somewhat stagnated Juventus attack. Possessing an ability to play on both flanks, he has great technical skills as well as an eye for goal. Primarily a right-winger, he will be expected to start games with another new recruit Dejan Kulusevski acting as competition for his place.

Chiesa has been quite a consistent player in the Serie A. Last season, he scored 10 goals and provided 6 assists in 34 appearances for Fiorentina. And as Juventus undergo an overhaul under new head coach Andrea Pirlo, they are also strengthening the youth squad with players for the future. It could potentially prove to be a deadline day game-changer, as Juventus seek to win yet another Scudetto and go far in the Champions’ League this season.
