Chelsea close to success in pursuit of Serie A winger
Chelsea’s pursuit of Fiorentina’s star Federico Bernardeschi may be a success after all, according to reports in the Italian Press. Bernardeschi have been in impressive form for Fiorentina this season where he has already scored 10 goals.
Chelsea’s Antonio Conte knows that Chelsea have been fortunate in the Premier League. They have had less injured players all season, However, this is likely because they are not competing in Europe and were knocked out of the Capital one cup early in the season.
But with European Football expected to be added to their fixtures list next season, Antonio Conte is prepared to add more options to his team.
23 year old Bernardeschi, is a top target. The player has been linked to other European teams this season, with reports even stating that he has agreed a move to Juventus. But Fiorentina would consider doing business with foreign teams rather than their rival. This has opened up the possibility of the player moving to the Premier League.
Bernardeschi is currently negotiating a new deal with Fiorentina, but has turned down an offer to put his release clause at £86 million.
