Juventus have reportedly asked Chelsea about a potential move for out-of-favour USMNT star Christian Pulisic, who AC Milan and Napoli also want.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport via GOAL, the Old Lady’s sporting director Giovanni Manna was in London on Tuesday to hold a meeting with Chelsea over the potential transfer of Pulisic.
The American attacker is one of the several players expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and is attracting interest from several Serie A sides, with Juventus the frontrunners.
According to the report, Chelsea are looking at using him in a player-plus-cash deal to sign Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The Juventus striker is one of Chelsea’s targets for the striker position but is yet to decide if he will move to Stamford Bridge, as the Blues are not in Europe next season.
However, Juventus wants to raise between €120-130 million this summer, and they hope to get around €80 million for Vlahovic. So that might negatively impact Pulisic’s chances of being included in the deal.
Meanwhile, fellow Serie A clubs AC Milan and Napoli could offer him an escape route from Chelsea as they are reportedly keen to secure the winger’s services.
