Liverpool and Newcastle United are reportedly showing interest in signing Juventus attacker Fede Chiesa.
The Euro 2020 winner is said to be unsettled at Juventus, feeling neglected by the new management team at the club, which is currently facing a crisis.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Juventus would be open to selling Chiesa for a fee of around €40 million.
It has been suggested that Liverpool has already made contact regarding a potential transfer, while Newcastle has been monitoring the player’s situation.
Chiesa made his return from knee surgery in the second half of the season for Juventus, which failed to qualify for the Champions League after being penalized with a 10-point deduction for inflating transfer values.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba suspended for anti-doping offense
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been suspended due to a failed doping test.
Italy’s national anti-doping tribunal (Nado) revealed that Pogba’s test showed elevated levels of testosterone following Juventus’ 3-0 victory against Udinese on August 20th.
It’s worth noting that Pogba was an unused substitute during that match.
Juventus said in a statement:
