Balotelli is up for sale at Liverpool and a move to Florence has been mooted.
Chiesa told TMW: "I state that I am speaking of him as a footballer and I continue to believe that he has extraordinary qualities, like few others.
"He cannot prove himself continuously. He's still young and I do not know why he has not been able to affirm itself. Again, for me, he is the prototype of the real striker."
He added: "I'd be curious to see it happen. He'd be back from a negative experience, but we thought he could've done well at Liverpool."
