English clubs are among those "knocking at the door" to sign Federico Chiesa, Fiorentina's sporting director Joe Barone has revealed.

Manchester United and Chelsea are among those to have been linked with 22-year-old Italy international Chiesa, who is under contract with Fiorentina until 2022.

The forward has scored six times in Serie A this season and provided three assists, with Juventus also thought to be weighing up a move.

While Barone stressed that midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli will be remaining in Florence, he was less sure of Chiesa's future.
