Chelsea are already plotting their next transfer targets, hoping for the ban to be lifted.
Emanuel Vignato was linked to several top European giants over the summer after an extraordinary season at Chievo, only for the youngster to stay at the club. The 19-year-old came within the youth system at Chievo and has made 21 first-team plays for the Italian outfit – seven of them in Serie B at the debut of the 2019-20 campaign.
According to the La Gazzetta Dello Sport, West London club have scouted Italian starlet this season with the Chelsea considering a swoop for the teenager once their transfer ban has come to an end.
Frank Lampard’s side are currently banned from bringing in new players after breaching FIFA rules on signing young players, but the Blues are reportedly hopeful that the suspension will be lowered on appeal.
The report, though, claims that Inter Milan, AC Milan and Bayern Munich are also interested in the talented attacker, who has been capped at Under-20 level by Italy. Representatives from the Stamford Bridge side told to have been present during Chievo’s Serie B clash two weeks ago to get a nearer look of Vignato.
The talented youngster mainly operates as a right-winger but has played in a central position for I Gialloblu this term. However, at this step, it remains to be seen if Frank Lampard’s men will make any additional moves for the Italian footballer.
