  • Italian giants keen on acquiring forward

WHAT HAPPENED? The United States international forward is said to have emerged as a top target for the Rossoneri in the summer window. Pulisic is approaching the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge, which is leaving Chelsea open to offers.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Milan would like to do a deal at around the €15 million (£13m/$16m) mark, but Chelsea are said to be refusing to waver in their stance that an offer of “over €20m (£17m/$22m)” will be required.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Milan are unlikely to make their move before the end of June, with books needing to balanced at San Siro, but there is every chance that Pulisic will be on the move before the next deadline passes. If he is, then a four-year stint in west London that has delivered 145 appearances and a Champions League winners' medal will be brought to a close.
