Liverpool opinion: Klopp should make a move for Federico Chiesa
Liverpool might have fallen just short of the Premier League title but they ended up as the Kings of Europe.
They became the only the third team to win six Champions League trophies, surging past both Bayern Munich and Barcelona. Not only that, the Reds are closing in on AC Milan’s legacy, who have seven to their name.
While Real Madrid’s total of 13 may be a bit out of reach at the moment, if Jurgen Klopp’s at the helm, anything is a possible target.
The former Borussia Dortmund boss has taken his time to establish a legacy at Anfield for himself after doing the same at the Signal Iduna Park and at Mainz before that.
It’s a stunning achievement but one that has taken a lot of time and patience. However, given the side that Klopp has established and race the put up against Manchester City, few would have given them a chance not to walk away with the double.
In the end, a few draws cost the club and they had to miss out by a single point. The Champions League crown made sure that Liverpool’s best side in a long time, didn’t walk away trophyless.
What does Jurgen Klopp have to do to make sure that the Reds surge past Manchester City and their team of world-class stars? The first thing will be to erase any complacency but his second task is even harder.
The task will be adding the right players to add depth to their squad and maybe a little competition for first-team places. It’s what Guardiola has done at the Etihad Stadium and for Klopp to be able to conquer England, he has to add the right players.
One man that fits the bill perfectly is Federico Chiesa and the Express has reported that Liverpool are plotting a deal for the Fiorentina man. The 21-year-old is arguably one of the best players in the Serie A and proved that time after time.
A Viola youth star, Chiesa has fought his way up and made quite an impact in the Serie A. The 21-year-old’s precocious talent has been on show over the last few seasons but, it wasn’t until his second full season that Chiesa really came into the limelight, contributing to 15 goals.
This season, however, he’s taken things to another level, contributing to 21 goals in a rather disappointing campaign for the club. It shows his perseverance and work ethic in a struggling side and he still has so much more to offer.
His ability on the ball makes it impossible to predict his next move and that’s what Liverpool need at the moment. The Premier League and even the world know what Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah can do, so adding someone like Federico Chiesa will help ease the burden.

Liverpool needs someone next season and adding someone as good as Federico Chiesa will do only them good. The young forward will improve even further going forward and his talent will help him thrive in England.
It’s work ethic and attitude that will make the fans fall in love with him, same as they did in Italy.
