A heavyweight clash is brewing between Premier League giants over Italian phenom Federico Chiesa. Known for his electric pace and breathtaking skill, Chiesa's future at Juventus has become clouded with uncertainty, opening the door for a potential blockbuster move to England.

Despite a contract with the Turin side until 2025, whispers of a transfer have reached a fever pitch. With contract extension talks stalling, his status as a Juventus mainstay has come into question. Premier League heavyweights sense an opportunity, and they're not going to let it slip away.

For Liverpool, Chiesa represents more than just a marquee signing. The Italian speedster is seen as the potential successor to the throne of Anfield legend Mohamed Salah should the Egyptian leave the club.

Meanwhile, Tottenham and the seemingly unstoppable Newcastle United are equally eager to add his explosive dribbling and clinical finishing to their arsenals.

Juventus find themselves in a predicament. While Chiesa's undeniable talent has seen him contribute 28 goals and 22 assists across 114 appearances, recent injury troubles have cast some doubt on his dependability. This, coupled with the meteoric rise of young star Kenan Yildiz, has forced the Italian giants to reconsider their investment in Chiesa.

Gazzetta dello Sport suggest the winger may be ready for a fresh start, leaving Juventus contemplating the difficult question: sell high on a proven star, or risk his value diminishing further?

One thing's for sure: the price tag for Chiesa won't be cheap. Figures swirling around suggest a starting bid of £45-52 million (€53-61 million), but Juventus may well hold out for a truly staggering offer before parting ways with such a dynamic talent.

With their deep pockets, Premier League teams may be well-positioned to trigger a bidding war that could drive the price skyward.
