AC Milan opened talks to sign Chelsea £150,000 a-week forward

By | January 25, 2023

AC Milan have reportedly opened negotiations to sign Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

The American has struggled to make an impact under Graham Potter, and the club are reported to be willing to allow the 24-year-old to leave after the arrivals of Mykhaylo Mudryk and Noni Madueke.

Italian outlet Calcio Mercato reports that negotiations will begin this week, however it is not just the former Borussia Dortmund man on the Serie A champions’ radar.

The report states that they are also interested in a £26.5m move for midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, with technical director Paulo Maldini and sporting director Frederic Massara huge admirers of the 27-year-old.

A move for Pulisic should be easier to complete since his contract expires in the summer of 2024, however he is unlikely to leave this month as he is currently out for two months with a knee injury.

The 56-cap international has appeared 16 times in the Premier League so far this season, with a total of two goal contributions, whilst Loftus-Cheek has featured 14 times with no goal contributions.

Meanwhile, AC Milan are also believed to keeping close tabs on another Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech who is expected to depart from Stamford Bridge in the summer after the latest upgrades in the Blues roster.
