TOTTENHAM are reportedly looking to sign £53million-rated winger Federico Chiesa.
La Stampa via TMW claims Fiorentina have slapped the price-tag on their key man following a surge of interest from across Europe.
Spurs are said to be keen, as are Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Napoli and Roma.
Chiesa, 20, has emerged as one of the best young players in Serie A after breaking into Fiorentina’s first team last year.
He has four goals in 14 appearances this season and has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of his father, former Italy international Enrico Chiesa.
However, it appears teams will have to spend big money to secure the ace, who can also play as a secondary striker or central midfielder.
Tottenham have struggled to replicate last season’s form which saw them finish second in the Premier League to Chelsea.
Erik Lamela has only just returned to the pitch after more than a year out with injury, while Dele Alli and Harry Kane are yet to find the type of consistency which saw them elevated to England’s darlings by the media.
Should he join Spurs, Chiesa could take up a role on the right-hand side of the pitch, although there may have to be a changed to the 5-2-2-1 formational to accommodate him.
Chiesa would also be eligible to play in the Champions League, and his experience in Italy could come in handy during two legs against current Serie A champions Juventus.
