Atlético Madrid want to sign Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic in the summer.
The 24 year old is enduring another difficult season at Stamford Bridge, as he has struggled with a number of injuries, and the flurry of new arrivals in the January transfer window has just increased the competition for places.
The club now is ready for a summer clear-out, perhaps to make way for yet more new faces, and the American could well join those to be jettisoned, especially as his current deal is set to expire in 2024.
It is not beyond the realms of possibility that he will be used as a makeweight in a deal to sign Joāo Felix on a permanent basis.
The Portuguese international is on loan from Atlético until the end of the season and, although his move does not include an option to buy, the La Liga side are reportedly now looking for £88 million for him, down from the £124 million they originally wanted.
