Question for ed001- do you rate Frederico Chiesa and do you think he could fit into one of our front 3 positions? Seemed like he has quality and ran himself into the ground in the euros.

{Ed001's Note - I like him a lot and yes I think he could. In fact he is probably the best alternative I can think of to our front 3, if we needed to replace one.}

Chiesa is a top class player and has improved enormously in the past year. At Fiorentina I thought he was hard-working and agile though lacking in top-end quality, but he’s developed into a world-class attacker. Fast, two-footed, can finish with both feet and head, attacks space meaning he can get his team up the pitch - he’s amazing.

Chiesa would be an absolute awesome signing! 100% would fit straight in our team. As you listed already he has everything but what stud out the most to me was his engine he never stops. I can’t remember who owns him though.

A player klopp likes according to Ed 2. He would be my choice to replace any of the front 3 but I don't believe Juve are willing to sell this summer. If one of mane or salah are sold next summer for big money maybe we will look to him?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus cannot sell Chiesa, they don't own him.}

What about Dani Olmo? Maybe not as proven goalscorer as Chiessa, but a year younger, crafty with high engyne, and versatile to play every forward position. Also much attenable since he's at Leipzig

Just curious to know your thoughts (Eds and everyone else) about how he would fit with Klopp and Liverpool style.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in him.}

Spot on, Ed01. Chiesa is absolutely brilliant and have been watching him at Fiorentina a fair bit before he moved to Juve. At Juve, he is the only player that offers any type of width and pace and goal threat out wide. The old guy CR7 is just taking up space, IMO but that's another debate for another time.

The kid plays just like his dad Enrico played: Pace, power, fearlessness, relentless running (can run for days), desire and a true threat to run in behind and can score goals with either foot. I would take him in a snap. If ever we needed a Salah or Mane replacement, we should be rattling that cage, for sure instead of the useless Traore or the promising Sarr. Chiesa is so far ahead of them and his ceiling is pretty high, it's ridiculous.

As for who owns him, I think he still belongs to Fiorentina cos Juve only got him on a 9m pound loan. Maybe Ed01 can confirm or disprove this piece of info.

{Ed001's Note - isn't it a loan to buy? In which case I am not sure, it would depend on what the contract states, ie if it is an obligation to buy it would be different from an option to buy in terms of negotiations.}

Indeed, Ed01. I don't even know how long the loan is for so there's that also. We will have to see what happens going forward. Thanks as always, for your response. Cheers, bro.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome Oli.}

Football Manager (I know, the font of all football knowledge) has his loan as being made permanent after 50 games played for Juve or something like that, over the course of a 2 year loan. If that's the case, I would expect Juve to sign him permanently, as even if they are not planning on keeping him, they'd be able to sell him for far more than the agreed price with Fiorentina.

Of course, this could be completely false!
