Despite Hakim Ziyech joining whenever next season starts, the possible departures of Willian and Pedro mean that Chelsea will need at least one more winger to compete with the current crop. While Jadon Sancho is obviously the dream signing, alternatives will be looked at — not least because of Sancho’s exorbitant price tag which will make it very difficult to pull off any deal for him (for any team) in the current economic climate.

One of those alternatives could be Fiorentina’s young star, Federico Chiesa (ed.note: son of former well-traveled striker and Italy international Enrico Chiesa, if you’re old enough for that last name to sound familiar).
