According to a report in the Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing £70 million-rated Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa.

Chiesa’s fantastic performance in the Serie A this season has apparently caught the attention of several clubs including Spurs, Chelsea, Juventus, and Inter Milan.

Here’s all you need to know about the winger.

Full Name: Federico Chiesa

Age: 21

Club: Fiorentina

Nationality: Italy

Position: Winger/striker/attacking midfielder

Playing Style: Federico Chiesa is an extremely direct player who likes to get on the ball and take people on. While he is prone to losing the ball on many occasions, he is capable of pulling the opposing defence out of shape with his runs. He is also deadly in the counter-attack as he has a knack of releasing players at the right time.

Strengths: Take-ons, agility, balance

Weaknesses: Defensive contribution, predictability

Highlights of His Career: Chiesa broke through into the first team in the 16-17 season and had two solid campaigns as he became an important part of the Fiorentina side. However, he is currently having the best season of his career so far as he has been one of the rare shining lights in what has been a poor season for the Viola. The 21-year-old has notched up 11 goals so far this campaign and has become a regular fixture in the Italian national team.

Rumour rating: C-

While Chiesa would certainly be a great addition to the Spurs squad, he is not quite an urgent requirement at the moment since Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura are both players of similar style. Additionally, the price tag being mooted for the winger makes it unlikely that Spurs will contest for his signature.
