Fiorentina have reportedly upped their asking price for winger Federico Chiesa to £62m amid interest from the Premier League.
The likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the highly-rated 20-year-old, who has established himself as a regular in the Fiorentina first team over the past two years.
The Viola had initially placed a price tag of £44m on the head of Chiesa, but Gazzetta dello Sport reports that they have now increased that to £62m in an effort to ward off interest.
Chiesa is also wanted by Inter Milan and Napoli, and Fiorentina are unwilling to lower their demands due to the high level of interest in the player.
Chiesa – who is the son of former Italy international Enrico Chiesa – has been at Fiorentina since the age of 10 and has since gone on to score 10 goals in 72 first-team appearances for the club.
The youngster’s form last season also earned him a call-up to the Italy squad, and he has already won five caps for his country this year.
