Juventus are interested in signing Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic this summer as a return to Borussia Dortmund has been ruled out this summer, according to reports.
This comes as the Blues will listen to offers for the American and his teammates Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
The Italians have also shown interest in Werner already this summer, giving the Blues the green light to include the forward in a deal for Matthijs de Ligt.
Several attackers could be set for departures this summer, with Thomas Tuchel’s side agreeing a fee for Leeds United’s Raphinha.
Tuchel previously admitted that changes were needed in attack after his frontline struggled for goals last season.
"If we stick to the group then we will try to solve it with these players,” he said.
“There are a lot of options. The numbers we produce from our offensive players don’t allow us to over-perform and we need over-performance if we want to be nearer to the top two teams.
"I am not pointing fingers, I am not blaming anybody, but we need over-performance from everybody. It’s not over-performance if we have only single figures in scoring and assisting.”
According to the Daily Mail, Juventus would be open to taking Pulisic from Chelsea this summer.
The report states that talks have resumed for De Ligt, and Pulisic could be involved in a swap deal this summer.
The Dutch defender was identified as the priority target for Tuchel in defence this summer, overtaking Jules Kounde.
It remains to be seen whether Pulisic, or Werner, will be used in any deal for De Ligt this summer.
Rumours emerged that the American could be set for a return to Borussia Dortmund, also, but these have now been denied.
It has been stated that he is ‘not a topic’ at the Bundesliga club.
His departure from Stamford Bridge is ‘not unrealistic’ but he will not return to Dortmund.
This is due to the fact that both his salary and any transfer fee is deemed too expensive for the German’s.
Pulisic could be headed for the exit door this summer, but a return to the Bundesliga side is not on the cards as things stand.
