Chelsea are not completely against selling winger Christian Pulisic this summer, according to CaughtOffside.com.
The website claims that while the American international will not force a move away from Stamford Bridge, both the player and the club accept it may well be the “best option.”
Pulisic has been unable to break into Thomas Tuchel’s starting lineup since the German manager’s arrival in January, and he has been linked with a switch to Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munch in recent weeks.
Chelsea, meanwhile, need to raise funds in their attempt to sign Erling Haaland. Reports suggest that the Norwegian international could cost between £128m and £153m so the sale of Pulisic, who was signed for £58m, could bring in much-needed revenue.
Tuchel is believed to have asked for the squad to be trimmed, particularly in midfield, where there is an abundance of options, so Pulisic appears to be the likeliest to leave unless he can establish himself in the first team between now and May.
