Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked with a move Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa.
The Serie A club recently slapped a £62 million price tag on Chiesa to try and warn off potential suitors.
However, according to the Guardian, both Liverpool and United are considering launching a bid for the 20-year-old.
Chelsea and Liverpool are both believed to have sent scouts to Italy to watch the attacker in action last season.
Fiorentina boss Stefano Pioli handed clubs a boost in their pursuit of Chiesa back in April.
“I’m calm, even if you can never be in football,” Pioli told Rai Radio. “Can Chiesa become a ‘bandiera’ or will he be sold like (Federico) Bernardeschi? I don’t know.
“What I can say is that he’s grown a lot – he’s made great strides and he can become very important for this club.”
Chiesa made his competitive debut for Fiorentina in a 2–1 away defeat against Juventus in 2016.
He has represented Italy at various junior levels and made his senior international debut in a friendly against Argentina in March 2018.
