Juventus have become the frontrunners for the signature of USMNT star forward Christian Pulisic.
The 24-year-old has struggled for form this season for the Blues, scoring only once in 30 appearances in all competitions and incurred the wrath of some Chelsea fans on the final match of the season with a minority of supporters booing the Pennsylvania native when he was introduced as a second-half substitute in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.
Juventus keen on USMNT star forward
And according to ESPN writer Mark Ogden, the Old Lady have stolen a march in the race to sign one of USMNT’s most valued assets with Chelsea willing to listen to offers of around $25m.
Pulisic joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in 2019 for $72m and initially started well, scoring the opening goal against Arsenal in the 2020 FA Cup final, becoming the first American ever to do so.
Since then, injuries have hampered his time at Stamford Bridge but at just 24, Pulisic still has a lot of time ahead of him, and with Angel Di Maria set to leave Juve, the American is much more likely to earn regular first-team football in Italy next season.
