Juventus are reportedly at the front of the chasing pack for Chelsea and USA forward Christian Pulisic.

It’s no secret that the American star is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer following a hugely disappointing season.

He’s been heavily linked with a move to Serie A and it appears Massimiliano Allegri’s side are the favorites to land Pulisic in a $25million deal, reports ESPN.

Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Manchester United and Newcastle as well as Napoli, AC Milan and Galatasaray have all been touted as possible destinations for the player who struggled to find consistency in west London.   

The 24-year-old is expected to be part of a mass summer exodus following Chelsea’s abysmal season and the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino as owner Todd Boehly’s fourth manager.

Pulisic was booed on to the pitch by Chelsea fans during their final game of the season on Sunday.

He came off the substitutes’ bench with just minutes left, replacing Noni Madueke, but was jeered by some sections of the home support in the 1-1 tie with Newcastle.

It left Chelsea all the way down in 12th to end the 2022-23 campaign – the first season under the ownership of Boehly. 

Pulisic made the move from Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea for $72m back in January 2019.

His time in the Premier League has been hindered by injuries and the most recent season was no different.

Pulisic netted just one goal and provided two assists in 30 appearances. He started just eight times in the Premier League as he fell out of favor.

The American has just one year left on his contract, meaning Chelsea run the risk of losing him for nothing next year should he not depart this summer.

He helped Chelsea win the Champions League in 2021, coming on as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Porto final.

Pulisic had earlier scored an important goal in the first leg of the semi-final against Real Madrid, while also teeing up Mason Mount to make it 2-0 in the return game.
