Liverpool plot bid for £53m Serie A star who previously rejected the Reds as Salah’s replacement
Liverpool could sign Juventus star Federico Chiesa as a Mohamed Salah replacement, according to a fresh report.
In the summer, Jurgen Klopp plans to completely overhaul his squad in an effort to revive Liverpool.
After just 19 games, the Merseyside team is presently ninth in the Premier League, 21 points behind league leaders Arsenal.
To resuscitate the team, the Reds have been linked to deals for players like Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez throughout the summer.
The star of Italy’s victory at Euro 2020, Chiesa, is another player who might be moving to Merseyside.
According to Calciomercatoweb Liverpool are among several Premier League clubs interested in Juventus’ Chiesa.
The winger, who has the potential to be one of the most effective wide players in football worldwide, would reportedly only cost £53 million.
Soon after his heroics at the Euros, the 25-year-old suffered an ACL injury that kept him out of action for a large chunk of a year.
The injury has restricted the 25-year-old to just six Serie A appearances this season, in which he has claimed two assists.
If Chiesa makes the move to Merseyside, he would be joining the Premier League giants after allegedly snubbing a £60million move to the Reds more than two years ago.
The report also claims that Liverpool could be open to selling Salah to Paris Saint-Germain.
Salah, who only signed a new Liverpool deal last summer, could allegedly be offloaded to PSG for around £70million, with the proceeds of the sale going back into the playing squad.
This season, the Egyptian star player has managed to score 17 goals across all competitions, including seven in the Champions League.
The 30-year-old has only scored seven Premier League goals, failing to reach the heights of prior seasons for the Reds. Since moving to Merseyside in 2017, the winges may likely fail to score 20 league goals for only the second time in his stay at Anfield.
