Giorgio Chiellini claims Christian Pulisic would be a ‘fantastic’ Juventus signing

LAFC defender Giorgio Chiellini has claimed United States international Christian Pulisic would be a ‘fantastic’ new addition for for his former club Juventus.

90min revealed last week that Juventus have informed Chelsea they would be open to receiving Pulisic as a makeweight in any deal involving Dutch international Matthijs de Ligt, whose asking price is believed to be in the €100m ($101.6m) region.

Our sources indicate that De Ligt is now more likely to join Bayern Munich, but that this wouldn’t dampen Juve’s interest in Pulisic – 90min understands the Old Lady are also keeping tabs on Chelsea’s Italian midfielder Jorginho.

Should he make a move to Turin, Pulisic would link up with fellow USMNT star Weston McKennie. Chiellini – who recently left Juventus for MLS overall leaders LAFC – believes the 23-year-old winger would be a ‘fantastic’ option for his former club.

“Honestly, it’s the first time I heard it, but I think Juventus needs some winger as Pulisic,” Chiellini told ESPN’s Futbol Americas show.
