Pulisic Close To £20m AC Milan Switch

USA forward Christian Pulisic is close to completing a £20m move from Chelsea to AC Milan.

Pulisic, 24, is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and is due to have a medical in Milan this week.

He joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in a £57.6m move in 2019 that made him the most expensive player from North America.

Pulisic scored 26 goals in 145 games and played in the 2021 Champions League final win over Manchester City.

His switch to Serie A will mean linking up with former Chelsea team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has also joined Milan this summer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea striker David Datro Fofana, 20, has made a season-long loan move to Union Berlin in the Bundesliga.

The Ivorian made just four first-team appearances for Chelsea following a January move from Molde.

Chelsea have parted ways with several established first-team players this summer.

Dunk Signs New Contract

Meanwhile, Brighton captain Lewis Dunk has extended his contract by a year to 2026.

The 31-year-old central defender has played 416 games since making his debut in League One in 2010.

Manager Roberto de Zerbi said: “It’s good news for Lewis and the club. I’m really happy he has signed this new contract.”

Brighton finished sixth in the Premier League last season to qualify for Europe for the first time.

Dunk won his only England cap in a friendly victory over USA in 2018.

He was recalled for June’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia but had to withdraw through injury.

He was appointed Brighton club captain in 2019.
