Alasdair Gold shares what he knows about Tottenham’s links with Juventus star

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have been eager to bolster their attacking options in the current transfer window. However, it seems that Spurs are unlikely to pursue Juventus winger Federico Chiesa, despite his availability at a bargain price this summer.

Renowned journalist Alasdair Gold recently mentioned on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast that sources within the club have downplayed any interest in the Italian star, who is reportedly available for just £17 million.

The 26-year-old forward has entered the final year of his contract with Juventus, which is set to expire next June.

Known for his speed, skill, and versatility on both wings, Chiesa has been a standout performer for the Bianconeri.

In the 2021-22 season, Chiesa’s momentum was disrupted by an anterior cruciate ligament injury, sidelining him for seven months.

Despite this setback, he made a strong comeback, scoring 9 goals and providing 3 assists in 33 Serie A appearances last season .

Internationally, Chiesa has shined as well, playing a pivotal role in Italy’s Euro 2020 victory and earning a spot in the Team of the Tournament.

Despite Chiesa’s impressive credentials and the relatively low transfer fee, Tottenham appears to have ruled out a move for him.

Gold highlighted that enquiries about Chiesa yielded negative responses from multiple Spurs sources, indicating that the club is not looking to sign the Juventus winger at this time.

Gold stated:

“It’s one of those where you see the price and you’re like ‘ooh’. I asked about Chiesa a few days back around various people and everything coming back was ‘no’. I should stress that was a few days ago.”

While Federico Chiesa would undoubtedly add quality and depth to the team, it appears that a transfer to North London is not currently in the cards for the Italian international.

Tottenham’s focus seems to be elsewhere as they continue to explore other options to strengthen their squad for the upcoming Premier League campaign.
