Report: Club already working to sign £31m player off Chelsea, they've contacted his agent now

Juventus have reportedly made contact with the agent of Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic, 24, is a talented United States international who’s electric on his day, but consistency has been his overriding problem at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues player been linked earlier this month as someone that Juventus are keen on signing.

There’s now been a fresh update regarding the Italian club’s interest now, though.

Juventus contact with Pulisic agent

According to Calciomercato, a move from Juventus to sign Pulisic is underway and could perhaps gather pace in the coming months.

It is understood Juve have already been in discussions with the winger’s agent to discuss the future beyond the end of the season.

The report explains Chelsea value the American speedster at €35million (£31million) right now, which is a figure they’re determined to stick with.

With his current deal at the Bridge expiring in 2024, there’s no immediate rush to make a final decision on his future.

Pulisic’s had a very slow start to the 2022/23 season, starting just one of his eight Chelsea appearances across all competitions.

However, Graham Potter’s arrival as the club’s new head coach may open up a chance to click the restart button.

There’s no doubting the skilful winger has immense individual ability, which is why a club like Juventus are working behind the scenes to try get him.

He’s had purple patches of form in his Chelsea career so far that have had fans dubbing him the Eden Hazard regen, but form and poor injury luck has gone against him.

Let’s see how the rest of the campaign pans out for him, especially when you consider the pressure he’ll be under to deliver for the US at the World Cup.
