Report: Champions League club are interested in 'fantastic' £150k-a-week Chelsea player

Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic.

According to Tuttosport, the Italian giants have set their sights on the £150,000-a-week Blues player as a potential target.

It is understood Juventus are already searching for potential new signings on the right wing, with both Juan Cuadrado and Angel Di Maria out of contract next year in Turin.

The report mentions that Chelsea winger Pulisic is on their transfer radar. Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers is being looked at, too.

Juventus interested in Pulisic

The Serie A club, who have a majorly talented squad, are already planning to sort their wide positions. Incidentally, they’ve endured a tough start to the season that means they’re eighth in the league, as well as pointless in their Champions League group.

For Pulisic, he should be delighted that an elite club like Juventus are circling for him.

He’s still got over a year and a half on his deal at Stamford Bridge, but it’s been a difficult time for him recently when it comes to his form.

Last chance

It feels like Pulisic really needs to get things right with Graham Potter if he’s to get his Chelsea career back on track.

Described as “fantastic” by former Blues manager Thomas Tuchel, Pulisic actually fell out of favour with his old boss.

He’s got the pace, directness and technique to torment full-backs. Therefore, you can understand why Juventus think he could be a good signing for them in the future.

However, there’s been just no consistent form recently in Chelsea colours when it comes to his creativity and goalscoring.
