Chelsea could reportedly include Christian Pulisic in a deal to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic this summer.

The west London giants are expected to land a marquee striker in the next transfer window and Vlahovic is one of the top targets.

The Bianconeri reportedly want €80m to sanction his sale, but the Blues appear keen to convince them with a player-plus-cash deal.

The club are ready to pay €50m for the Serbian striker while allowing Pulisic to move the other way on a permanent transfer.

Pulisic has been on Juventus' radar for a number of years and it remains to be seen whether they accept such a transfer agreement.

Vlahovic has had an average season with Juventus amid injuries. He has netted only 11 goals for the Bianconeri in all competitions.

Despite this, he continues to be highly regarded by Premier League clubs. Aside from Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd are also admirers.

Vlahovic turned down the Gunners to join Juventus in January last year.
