Chelsea ‘interested in Christian Pulisic swap transfer for Nicolo Zaniolo with Roma as Blues winger looks to quit’

 

CHELSEA are reportedly interested in a swap deal that would see Christian Pulisic go to Roma – and see Tottenham target Nicolo Zaniolo head the other way.

The Blues’ American star is increasingly frustrated with his game time at Stamford Bridge and may find his route into the team further blocked after the signing of Raheem Sterling.

Chelsea are looking for more forward options after letting Timo Werner follow Romelu Lukaku out of the club.

The case for more attackers was underlined by the uninspiring win at Goodison Park at the weekend.

Now reports suggest they are eyeing the highly-rated Nicolo Zaniolo.

Calciomercato report that the Blues would prefer a swap deal, which would allow them to offload Pulisic and potentially upgrade on him.

Zaniolo has impressed with his performances at Roma in recent seasons, and scored the winning goal against Feyenoord in the Europa Conference League final.

Spurs had been edging closer to the attacker all summer as they look to cut the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool.

Reports suggest the Italian could have well already landed in North London if not the for the late intervention of ex-Spurs gaffer Jose Mourinho.

Spurs had reportedly sealed a one year loan agreement with a £40m option to buy before the Roma boss pulled the plug at the last minute.

It leaves the door open to Chelsea, who earlier this month beat Man City to the signing of Marc Cucurella.

Pulisic only started 13 Premier League games last season and has failed to consistently impress fans.

He mentioned while on international duty with the USA earlier this year that he was looking for more “playing time” ahead of the World Cup.

The winger’s father went one step further, hitting out at the his son’s “sad situation” at Stamford Bridge.
