Chelsea star Christian Pulisic wanted by Juventus as transfer replacement for Paulo Dybala this summer

JUVENTUS are targeting a move for Chelsea star Christian Pulisic, according to reports.

That means Pulisic, 23, may be open to moving with Juventus keen to strike a deal, report Tuttosport.

"Onwards and upwards my boy… big six months ahead."

Juventus reportedly view Pulisic as a potential replacement for Paulo Dybala, who is set to leave on a free in the summer.
