Chelsea talks with Juventus' Federico Chiesa rubbished

Chelsea continue to watch Juventus star Federico Chiesa after he returned from long seasonal injury setback.

Federico Chiesa returned to the Juventus squad for the first time since January on Wednesday after being selected for his team’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

Italy forward Chiesa has been out of action since suffering a serious left knee injury at the start of the year but is one of just three forwards in a line-up heavily affected by injuries.

Chelsea has been linked to sign Italian forwarder since last two season but the transfer failed due to club reaching agreement.

While that matter is largely out of their hands, Chelsea are also understood to be looking to offload Ziyech once the January transfer window opens.

The Morocco international was on the fringes under former manager Thomas Tuchel and has struggled for minutes under Potter, and sources have confirmed that he is once again free to leave the club in January.

As was the case last summer, both Ajax and AC Milan are interested in pursuing a deal. Chelsea are prepared to allow Ziyech to leave on loan, perhaps for 18 months, but co-owner Todd Boehly is pushing for a permanent departure to raise funds and free up space in the squad.

Federico Chiesa has emerged has the most likily player to sign at the wing side but it depends on his injury resist.

However, any plans to sign Chiesa, who is valued at £63million on Transfermarkt, in the near future will have been scuppered by his recent injury returned.
