Federico Chiesa is reportedly not convinced by a move to Aston Villa this summer according to reports in Italy.

Roma have set their sights on the winger who has also been linked with a move to the West Midlands. Chiesa's agent Fali Ramadani has said to have been in contact with Roma technical director Florent Ghisolfi over a potential move according to Corriere dello Sport.

Talks are said to be continuing as they look to reach an agreement on a transfer that would keep him in Italy. However, Chiesa is reportedly biding his time because he wants to play Champions League football next season and Villa can certainly deliver.

Links to Chiesa have been ongoing since May, but Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist Stefano Agresti said at the time that it would be tough for Villa to convince him to move.

"It is clear that perhaps something would change if an offer arrived from an English club rather than Roma, but Chiesa is very ambitious. Last year there was interest from Aston Villa, who will most likely go to the Champions League because they are fourth in the Premier League. He felt Aston Villa was not enough of a club to convince him to leave Juve,” said Agresti.

According to the latest reports a move to Villa still does not 'tickle' the fancy of the Juventus ace and he is waiting to see if further offers arise. Roma's offer remains on the table but it is said they are willing to wait too long as they look at other targets.

It is not the first time that Villa have been linked with Chiesa who has consistently been touted with a move to England in the last couple of years. Chelsea and Liverpool have also been reported as potential destinations.
