Chelsea are reportedly looking to offload 24-year-old American forward Christian Pulisic at the end of the season.
According to a report from The Guardian, Chelsea are hoping to cash in on 24-year-old USMNT international Christian Pulisic at the end of the season.
The American forward has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge. And he has not been a regular starter for Graham Potter this season. It makes sense for the Blues to sanction his departure and invest the money into the playing squad.
Chelsea have been extremely active in the transfer market since the change of ownership. And Todd Boehly has invested more than £500 million on 16 permanent signings so far. The Blues clearly need to get rid of their fringe players now and reduce the squad size.
Also, Chelsea will need to raise some funds in order to circumvent the FFP regulations after their heavy spending. That is where Pulisic, who has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, comes into the picture. And it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
The 24-year-old did quite well in the recently-concluded World Cup, and he has the quality to be an important player for most teams around the world. Despite making an impressive to life at Stamford Bridge, his form has dipped over the past year, and he needs a fresh start to get his career back on track.
The winger has a market value of €38 million, and he should have no shortage of suitors during the summer window. The 24-year-old is yet to reach his peak, and he is likely to improve further with coaching and game time.
The Blues have already signed a number of attacking players including Mykhaylo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and Joao Felix. They will not be able to accommodate Pulisic in the starting lineup. And it makes sense for the two parties to go separate ways in the summer.
The likes of Hakim Ziyech, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling have not been at their best either. And Chelsea will likely decide to cash in on most of them in the coming months.
