Newcastle ‘Willing To Offer’ More Than £52M For Italian Ace As Arsenal And Chelsea Also Enter The Race

Newcastle are “willing to offer” in excess of €60m (£52m) for Juventus winger Federico Chiesa, according to

The Italian website claim that the Magpies are one of three English clubs who are keen on securing the services of the 26-year-old.

Arsenal and Chelsea are also believed to be weighing up offers of their own, with Chiesa’s future reportedly in the balance with talks over a contract extension on the horizon.

As the Italian international’s current deal is set to expire in 2025, a renewal is one of Juve’s top priorities but, if he doesn’t put pen to paper before next summer, there is a good chance that he will be sold.

Chiesa had a strong start to the season

The winger got off to a flying start to the campaign, having scored 4 goals in his first five league matches, but he has been pretty quiet in recent weeks.

A muscular injury halted Chiesa’s momentum and he is now on a barren run in front of goal which stretches back to mid-September.

Newcastle are likely being used by the player’s agent

Magpies supporters will have to get used to the fact that representatives of players will use the club’s name in negotiating new contracts.

While Chiesa is very talented, all the signs suggest that he is keen on remaining with Juve, so the links to Newcastle, Arsenal and Chelsea are likely designed to put pressure on his current team to enter talks.

In any case, Eddie Howe’s side will likely prioritise signing a central midfielder, to replace Sandro Tonali, rather than a winger, so it’s hard to believe they would shell out £50m+ on Chiesa. If they are in the market for a wide man, they would probably target a cheaper alternative.
