Liverpool have NOT made Federico Chiesa bid as Italy star 'untouchable' at Juventus after Euro 2020 heroics


Liverpool have not made a bid for Juventus and Italy star Federico Chiesa, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had been linked with a move for the winger with some reports in Italy claiming they had made a massive bid of £86million.

But those claims have been rubbished by transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, who says no bid has been made and Juventus will not sell him.

He wrote on Twitter: “Liverpool have NOT made an official bid for Federico Chiesa despite rumours. There’s nothing going on and no chance to sign him this summer.

“Liverpool board knows about Juventus stance. Chiesa is considered ‘untouchable’ – FC Bayern are aware of this decision too.”

The 23-year-old was one of the standout performers of Euro 2020, helping Italy win the tournament as they beat England in the final.

He was brilliant in the final and that followed a solid debut campaign with Juventus.

But Juve legend Gianluigi Buffon admitted he was a little surprise at how meteoric his rise has been.

Buffon told Gazzetta dello Sport: “When he arrived at Juve I didn’t think he was so good. I am honest. In the European Championship he was unbelievable, in the final match with England, it was impossible to stop him.

“After a season at Juve with Federico it is no longer a surprise for me, but it was not obvious that he would be able to play at such a high level in a tournament like the European Championship.

“If you do those things at such a high level, then it means that you are really special.”
