Italian champions Juventus have set their eyes on Christian Pulisic. The Bianconeri attempt to take advantage of Chelsea’s current state of disarray.
Juventus is expected to make a series of attacks on Chelsea’s ranks during the summer transfer window, according to a report from Gazzetta Dello Sport. The Italian giants are looking to take advantage of Chelsea’s current predicament. Particularly in light of the recent fine imposed on owner Roman Abramovich by the United Kingdom government.
Chelsea is also subject to the government’s penalties. This essentially imposes a transfer ban on the club in question. It has placed the club in a precarious position. This may result in a scenario in which rival teams take advantage of their financial difficulties to poach the talents away from Stamford Bridge and to other clubs.
Amid the current transfer stalemate, Liverpool great Jamie Carragher has already pushed Manchester United to make a bid for Thomas Tuchel. Likewise, it looks that Juventus has the same mindset. The Italian giants have now set their eyes on Christian Pulisic, as well as a slew of other Chelsea FC players.
Pulisic has been a member of the Chelsea squad since the start of the 2019 season. But he has had a difficult time at Stamford Bridge. Several ailments have hampered his development. The American international has also suffered due to a lack of playing time. As a result, the winger has made just 10 Premier League appearances this season. This puts him below Hakim Ziyech, Mason Mount, and Kai Havertz in the team’s attacking pecking order.
Chelsea are in complete disarray
Juventus are on high alert as a result of Pulisic’s uncertain future at Stamford Bridge. As a result of speculation tying Paulo Dybala to a transfer away from Turin, the Bianconeri are eager to strengthen their offensive alternatives for the next season. The Argentine international has previously been linked with moves to Manchester United and Arsenal. His current contract is set to expire after the current campaign.
Consequently, the addition of Pulisic to Juventus’ offensive unit might be vital in their efforts to close the holes in their squad while also improving their overall quality. A transfer to Juventus may see the 23-year-old reunite with his United States Men’s National Team teammate Weston McKennie. The club believes that the two can work together to help Massimiliano Allegri rebuild the group from the ground up.
Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic isn’t the only player in the wishlist of Juventus. The Serie A giants are also showing interest in Hakim Ziyech, according to reports. There is a recent resurgence for the Moroccan international under Thomas Tuchel. But the team’s continued troubles may force him to seek a new club in the summer.
The situation is the same in the case of other targets such as Jorginho, who has expressed a desire to return to Italy in the past and who remains a major target for Juventus.
