Reports have recently linked Chelsea with a move for Fiorentina winger Federico Bernardeschi.

As reported by the Daily Express:

“Bernardeschi, 22, who has come through the youth ranks at Fiorentina wants to move to Stamford Bridge in the New Year.

The Italian under-21 international has been a target for Antonio Conte since he took over in West London last summer.

And he is on his wanted list for January and Bernardeschi has told Fiorentina that he wants to move to the capital.

Conte has been looking around his homeland for reinforcements for his squad with a left back, striker and central defender on his wanted list.

He missed out on targets last summer when they had bids rejected and knows that it will be difficult to get some of his them in January.

The January transfer window is notoriously difficult to get clubs to sell players but Bernardeschi is determined that he won’t have to wait until next summer to move.”

 

How does he rate in the Serie A?

According to WhoScored, Bernardeschi is ranked within the top 90 Serie A players this season with an average rating of 6.96 per game.

The winger has grabbed 4 goals and an assist in 11 appearances so far this season.
