Christian Pulisic has only 12 months left on his contract with the Stamford Bridge team and has no intention of re-signing.
Brought by Chelsea from Dortmund in the summer of 2019 for £58 million, Pulisic did not leave much of an impression during his time with the Blues.
Now he is excluded from the plan of the new coach Pochettino, so he is forced to find a new destination in his career.
Newcastle, Napoli and Juventus have expressed interest in Pulisic in the past. But recently, Lyon and AC Milan are the two most closely pursued teams.
Lyon put on the negotiating table £ 21.5 million, but the captain of the US team himself did not want to go to France to play football. While Milan only made an initial offer of 12 million pounds.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Italian team has just made a breakthrough when raising the price to 17 million pounds. Negotiations are going well.
Chelsea will accept the above fee to soon push “inventory”. If he lands at San Siro, Pulisic will reunite with former teammates Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud.
