Report: Newcastle United now ask about signing £58m player this summer, he’s apparently not keen on joining Leeds
Reports suggested this week that Pulisic has no interest in joining Leeds United this summer but the Magpies could now try to tempt the player to St James’ Park.
The United States international joined Chelsea back in 2019 for a fee of £58 million (BBC) but has not quite lived up to the price tag as of yet.
The 23-year-old has been brilliant in spells in West London but has struggled to nail down a place in Thomas Tuchel’s side due to inconsistency.
But Magpies boss Eddie Howe has been on the lookout for attacking reinforcements and could now turn his attention to Pulisic.
Howe’s men are apparently interested in four Chelsea players, including Callum Hudson Odoi, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja.
Newcastle ask about signing Pulisic
While the winger is apparently not keen on joining Leeds, he could be tempted by an offer from Newcastle.
Chelsea are also said to be interested in bringing Everton winger Anthony Gordon to Stamford Bridge this summer, which could open the door for Pulisic to leave.
At just 23, Pulisic still has his best years ahead of him and would be a brilliant coup for Howe.
Despite an underwhelming period at Chelsea, the American is clearly a talented player but may need to seek out regular first-team football soon.
Pulisic started just 13 times for the Blues last season and is yet to start during the current Premier League campaign either.
The Chelsea man is a versatile player who can operate on either flank and in an attacking midfield position. He would certainly go a long way to providing depth and quality across Newcastle’s frontline.
