Manchester United and Manchester City are two of six clubs in the running to sign Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina, according to a report.

Fiorentina ace Federico Chiesa is reportedly a transfer target for a number of European heavyweights, including Premier League pair Manchester United and Manchester City.

The 21-year-old, who predominantly plays on the right side of the forward line, has starred for the Viola over the last 12 months and is now a regular for the Italy senior side.

Chiesa has struck a combined 10 times in Serie A and the Coppa Italia this term, with seven of those goals coming in his last five outings.

Fiorentina are hoping to keep hold of their star attacker for at least another year, but Corriere dello Sport suggests that the Italian side have a real battle on their hands.

As well as the Manchester duo showing an interest, the report indicates that Inter Milan and Juventus are in the running to sign the Fiorentina academy product, while Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are also monitoring his progress.

Chiesa has been capped 11 times by Italy since making his debut last March.
