German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have probably both registered their interest in Juventus star Federico Chiesa, who is valued at north of 100 million euros.
The Italian winger lit up Euro 2020 this summer and dazzled the spectators with his match-winning screens in the knockout phase as Italy continued to lift the trophy at Wembley Stadium. His heroism has already attracted the attention of the Premier League, but now the Bundesliga is trying its luck.

According to Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg, Bayern and Dortmund have both asked about Chiesa’s availability this summer, even though their progress has been emphatically rejected.
Chiesa is represented by Lian Sports, the same company that looks after Bayern star Leroy Sane. It is a potential link between the player and the German champions, although a move seems very unlikely.
The same goes for Dortmund, who will replace Jadon Sancho, who has finally left for Manchester United, and potentially Erling Haaland, who arouses interest from the heavyweights of football.
Chiesa has not expressed any intention to leave Juve this summer, nor is the club interested in selling him.
A report claimed that Bianconeri had already rejected a huge € 100 million bid from Chelsea, but the Blues, along with Liverpool, are still keeping an eye on the winger.
The 23-year-old has only spent one season in Turin, where he moved on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy at the end of the 2021/22 campaign. Juve still have to pay the final transfer fee of 40 million euros, but Europe’s giants are already circulating for the Italian star.
Chiesa currently earns around € 7 million net per year, a figure that Juventus may need to increase to keep its talisman. The forward scored nine goals and provided nine assists in Serie A last season, starring in a struggling Bianconeri side.
