The forward played a more peripheral role last season, and a move could help him regain form.

Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic has been linked with a move to AC Milan.

Apart from the Serie A heavyweights, the American is said to have attracted further interest from two more clubs. Chelsea are said to be ready to let Pulisic move on a permanent transfer after struggling to impress.

The USMNT forward could move to Italy for a fee of around €25 million, but Chelsea and AC Milan have yet to reach an agreement, although Pulisic himself is reportedly interested in a move.

The American has struggled to make himself a regular player for the Blues, and a move away could help him resuscitate his career. He started just eight matches in the Premier League last season.

The 24-year-old is still regarded as a top talent within Europe and still has time to achieve his top-level potential. He was a promising star during his time in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and at Chelsea and has shown flashes of tremendous talent. He was signed by the Premier League side for €64 million.

AC Milan are thought to be keen on adding more talent to their attacking department, and Pulisic is seen as a viable investment in terms of longevity and quality.

And should they land their target for €25 million, that would prove to be a masterstroke. With recent investment that saw Chelsea sign more forwards, that only points to the possibility of more limited minutes for Pulisic.

The possibility of reduced minutes means a possible departure could be the best option for both parties.

The departure of Sandro Tonali to Newcastle United means AC Milan have some coins they can spend during the transfer window, and it remains to be seen whether they can get the deal across the line.
