Tottenham reportedly want to sign 25-year-old attacker who's meant to be the next Gareth Bale

Tottenham have been linked with a swoop for Euro 2020 winner Federico Chiesa, who has been compared to Gareth Bale.

Antonio Conte dreams of signing Chiesa for Spurs in the summer, as per Calciomercatoweb but they also claims that Juventus would only listen to a swap deal offer.

They say that if Richarlison or Son Heung-min moved in the opposite direction, Juventus would consider a deal for the Italian international.

Chiesa is only just making his way back into the Juve side after 10 months on the sidelines with an ACL injury and made two substitute appearances in Serie A before the World Cup break.

Chiesa has been compared to Bale

We all know the dangers in comparing emerging footballers to more established legends, but in March 2019, Fiorentina director Giancarlo Antognoni compared Chiesa with Bale while he was still at his club.

He said: “Chiesa has dribbling skills and quality, but also stamina, pace and power.

“He’s like a young Gareth Bale who drives you crazy and never gives in.”

Chiesa is 25 now and of course that European Championship win at Wembley to his name, as well as a Coppa Italia with Juventus.

That means his career is not as decorated as Bale’s but he still has the time and the talent to get some more trophies and get to that level.

Surely Spurs would not let Son or Richarlison go in a swap deal anyway so the interest is unlikely to move forward unless there is a change in Juve’s stance between now and the summer.
