French club Lyon have identified Chelsea winger and US national team captain Christian Pulisic as a priority signing this summer. The French club have reportedly offered a sum of €25 million for the talented player.
The offer from Lyon also includes a buy-back option for Chelsea, adding another layer of intrigue to the potential deal.
The bid from Lyon is considerably higher than a previous offer from AC Milan, which was reported to be around €14 million. This puts Lyon in a favourable position, as Chelsea would logically prefer to sell to the highest bidder.
However, the transfer is far from a done deal. According to The Athletic, Pulisic has already signed an agreement with AC Milan and seems to prefer a move to the Italian club, who have qualified for the next Champions League. Despite this, Lyon are not backing down and are determined to make their summer dream come true.
Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
