Mercato: OL have made a €25m bid for Pulisic
Olympique Lyonnais have made a €25 million offer to Chelsea for their American winger Christian Pulisic.
John Textor has made a move for his compatriot Christian Pulisic. According to The Athletic, OL made a €25 million offer to Chelsea on Sunday for the 24-year-old American winger, who has just one year left on his contract. The offer also included a buy-back option in favor of the Blues.

A few minutes earlier, The Athletic revealed that AC Milan had also made an offer to Chelsea for Pulisic, but for only €14m. Lyon's offer is therefore considerably higher than that of the Italian club, and Chelsea would logically prefer to sell to OL as things stand.
However, the deal is not yet complete for Lyon, since according to the same source, Christian Pulisic has already signed an agreement with AC Milan, and seems to prefer a move to the Rossoneri, who have qualified for the next Champions League. In any case, Lyon are giving themselves the means to make their summer dream come true.
