Both Manchester United and Chelsea are keen to add to their squad before the transfer window slams shut on August 31.
The Red Devils have wrapped up three summer signings so far in the form of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.
However, Jose Mourinho wants a winger after previously focusing his efforts on Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic.
Mourinho feels another wide player is the ticket to United ending their five-year wait for the Premier League title.
And All Nigerian Soccer claim he is now set to battle Chelsea for Fiorentina prodigy Chiesa.
The 19-year-old is billed as one of Serie A’s hottest prospects after starring for Italy’s Under-21 team at the European Championships this summer.
Chiesa weighed in with assists against Denmark and Germany.
Chelsea also want the player with Antonio Conte determined to wrap up more signings.
The Blues slumped to a shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley in their Premier League opener this afternoon.
It is no secret that Conte, despite already adding four new players to his squad, wants more reinforcements.
However, speaking after the game, the Italian said he was not worried about their business.
“For the transfer market the club is trying to do their best, I am not worried, I am ready to fight with these players.”
