Juventus forward Federico Chiesa and his partner Benedetta Quagli may be forced to ditch their lavish lifestyle in Italy for the wind and rain of Tyneside this year as Newcastle United eye a move for the winger.
The Magpies are being linked with some of the most exciting talents in world football at the moment, and Juventus’ Chiesa is no exception.
Last week, Newcastle unbelievably became the wealthiest club in Europe after they were sold by Mike Ashley to a Saudi-Led consortium.
The group, Saudi Arabia’s Public Interest Fund (PIF), are approximately worth £320billion, which makes them £100bn wealthier than Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain.
PIF are expected to spend a lot at St James Park to make Newcastle a successful and competitive club again, and they won’t manage that with their current crop of players.
Chiesa has been linked with a move to the Premier League for several seasons now, with Manchester United and Liverpool both thought to be interested, but Calcio Mercato, via Sport Witness, has revealed that the Magpies have joined the race to secure his signature.
The 23-year-old was a standout performer at Euro 2020 and has scored four and assisted one in six appearances in the Serie A so far this season.
Who will Newcastle sign in the January transfer window? Have your say in the comments below.
If Newcastle are prepared to make a significant bid for the forward then Juventus may be tempted to part ways with Chiesa, which could be bad news for his girlfriend Benedetta.
The model and influencer has 281,000 followers on her Instagram account (@she.s.benni) and often shares images of her enjoying time with Chiesa and her friends out in Italy, where the sun shines a lot more than in England.
Benedetta is dog-obsessed and regularly updates her followers on her dogs and shares images of them playing and sleeping.

Chiesa is not the only Juve player being linked with Newcasle though; Tuttosport, via Marca, have claimed that Aaron Ramsey and Matthijs de Ligt are both being considered as potential signings too.
