Several clubs have been linked with a move for the American star and he does have a lot of suitors. However, leaving Chelsea would be another change for the young forward, one that he might not be able to handle this early in his career.

Christian Pulisic linked with a move to Liverpool

Regardless of the uncertainty surrounding his future, one big club is linked with a move for the American forward. According to a report by SportingNews, Champions League finalists Liverpool could make an approach for Pulisic this summer.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, and Liverpool would be in the market for a new forward if that happens. However, it’s hard to see Chelsea sell their star to a direct rival.

They might do so if they manage to sign Frenchman Ousmane Dembele from FC Barcelona on a free transfer. Only Paris Saint Germain is in the race to sign him, and it’ll be interesting to see how the entire situation unravels.

Pulisic’s future lies in Italy?

Earlier in the season, Pulisic was linked with both Juventus and AC Milan. Their interest hasn’t gone yet, especially Juventus who would want to sign a superstar to replace the departing Paulo Dybala.
