The famous French outlet have mentioned that the likes of PSG, Juventus and Inter Milan are also interested in luring the 22-year-old attacker.

On the other hand, as per La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Viola have offered Chiesa a lucrative new contract that will make him the highest paid player at the club.

The 17-capped international is naturally a winger, who can effectively play on either flank. However, this season, manager Giuseppe Lachini has opted to mostly utilize him as a center forward.

In all competitions this term, the youngster has started 25 games and directly contributed in 12 goals (7 goals and 5 assists).

Man Utd, who have not adequately replaced Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku as yet, do need to improve their wide attacking positions and the strike-force department. In such a scenario, a versatile attacker like Cheisa would be a quality addition.

His current contract with Fiorentina will expire in 2022 and as per Tutto Sport, he is valued at around 70 million euros (£63million).

In your opinion, should Man Utd splash the cash to sign Federico Cheisa in the summer transfer window?
