Fiorentina knockback Chelsea swap deal offer for Chiesa

Chelsea have suffered a setback in their pursuit of Federico Chiesa.

The Blues are eager to sign the winger in the summer to bolster their attacking options.

But Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that Chelsea wanted to swap players with Fiorentina for 22-year-old whizkid.

But the Italian club want a straight cash deal for the player who has scored seven and provided five assists this season.

Fiorentina know that cash is king at a time when all football clubs are struggling financially.

And they want to ensure that if they lose a talent such as Chiesa, they are getting enough money to rebuild the team to their liking.
