Chelsea are said to have set a valuation of €35 million for Christian Pulisic amid the recent summer transfer from Juventus, according to reports.
Pulisic is now in his fourth season at the Blues, having joined from Borussia Dortmund in 2019.
Since his arrival at the club, the American international has won the Champions League, the Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
His first season at Chelsea was highly impressive as he acquired 21 goal contributions in 34 games across all competitions for the side.
However, his game time since then has been affected by injuries, with the captain of the USMNT failing to consistently start for the west London side.
Such a lack of minutes on the pitch has led to speculation that he may leave the club, although this is not yet a certainty.
In recent days, Juventus have been reported to be interested in the winger, who has featured in all eight of Chelsea’s games so far this season.
The Serie A side are believed to have been ‘fond’ of the 24-year-old for some time, with his ability to play in various attacking positions being a desirable feature for them.
There is the potential for a move to happen in the January window, but a summer transfer is more likely, with Juventus already making contact with his agents.
Chelsea’s evaluation of the player has now been revealed, with CalcioMercato reporting that the Blues believe he is worth €35 million.
Pulisic’s deal does not expire until 2024 but if his game time at his current club does not improve, then there is a chance he could depart for the Serie A.
He is just one of three wingers who are currently at the club, with summer arrival Raheem Sterling and Hakim Ziyech being the others.
However, recent reports have suggested that this is the position on the pitch that Chelsea could look to add to in the January transfer market.
They still have Callum Hudson-Odoi on their books as he is out on loan at Bayer Leverkusen, but his parent club have the opportunity to recall him in the next window.
Once Chelsea have hired a sporting director, with their search still ongoing, it is believed that they could look for a new winger.
Despite featuring in all of the Blues’ games so far this season, Pulisic is yet to score or assist for the side.
He may have another chance to prove his worth though following the arrival of Graham Potter as their new head coach.
The former Brighton boss is set to take charge of his first Premier League match at the west London side on Saturday when they face Crystal Palace away from home.
