The report claims that Pulisic is considered a wide option if he is made available.

Meanwhile, according to reports from Italian channel CMW, Chelsea offered Pulisic in a straight swap deal that would see the American move to Roma in exchange for Nicolo Zaniolo.

However, Roma boss Jose Mourinho looks set to keep hold of the young Italian, having intervened late on to block a deal that would have seen Zaniolo move to Tottenham for $49 million.

It seems that for the right price, or the right relief, Chelsea would be willing to move on from a player who doesn’t seem to have a definite place in the starting eleven, especially after the acquisition of Raheem Sterling this summer.

Also, recent reports from the Guardian claimed that Tuchel does not trust Pulisic, who worked with him when they were both at Borussia Dortmund.

Despite his lack of faith, Tuchel may have no choice but to use Pulisic as a bench option.

Following the American’s performance in the team’s opener against Everton, when he was introduced off the bench, NBC’s Robbie Mustoe said he believed Pulisic should demand more playing time .

“Pulisic comes into the game looking fired up, looking sharp,” Mustoe commented.

“I should be knocking on the manager’s door and saying ‘what would you like to give me a spin?’ These other guys have had a lot of opportunities of late.

Chelsea open their 2022-23 campaign at home to Tottenham this Sunday.
