U.S. star forward Christian Pulisic will be on the move at the end of the 2022-23 season. According to reports from English media, Chelsea is looking to sell Pulisic as part of the summer rebuild, with Seria A teams Napoli and Juventus emerging as potential suitors for the 24-year-old American.

While Chelsea is still high on Pulisic, the Premier League side is willing to let him go due to his contract status. The player will have just one year left on his deal after the season ends, and the club doesn’t want to risk losing him for nothing in 2024.

Pulisic himself is believed to be open to the move as he looks to get more playing time. He made just 21 appearances in Premier League this season, including eight starts, and only managed to score once.

Both Napoli and Juventus believe they can help Pulisic get his career back on track and have him play a key role. Napoli is looking for a backup plan if star striker Victor Osimhen ends up leaving the club, while Juventus wants to build a squad that could help them reclaim the status as one of the top clubs in Italy.

Christian Pulisic joined Chelsea in 2019 from Borussia Dortmund in a transfer worth £58 million. While he had some spectacular performances in London, this was overshadowed by frequent injuries that limited him to just 142 games in four seasons.
