Ex-Napoli sports chief Pavarese: Sarri wants Chiesa at Chelsea

Former Napoli sports chief Luigi Pavarese can see Fiorentina striker Federico Chiesa moving to Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Chiesa, who has been linked with a move to England this season.

Pavarese told RMC: "I believe along with (Lorenzo) Insigne and (Federico) Bernardeschi they are the true talents of Italian football, he is already proving it at Fiorentina.

"We are aware of his qualities and he can do much better than his father. But the important thing is to keep his feet on the ground, but Chiesa is destined to grow.

"He will certainly be watched by many clubs, not only Italian, but I hope that he will remain in Serie A, even if Sarri really likes him, and at Chelsea he could do very well, I'm afraid that the Premier can steal him."
