AC Milan face strong competition in their attempts to sign Christian Pulisic as Lyon have submitted a substantially higher offer, a report claims.
According to The Athletic, Milan made their first verbal offer for Pulisic which was worth €14m, and it is an amount not deemed enough by Chelsea who want a fair bit more in order to part with the winger.
Yesterday, Lyon made their second bid for Pulisic which was worth €25m in addition to a significant sell-on clause that is still being negotiated. The Blues would be inclined to accept such a bid, and are ‘reluctant to let him exit for lower’.
Chelsea are on good terms with the Ligue 1 side after they signed Malo Gusto from them, while Lyon also have an American owner in John Textor.
Pulisic has scored 26 goals in 145 appearances for Chelsea following his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund, and it now seems Milan will have to up the stakes or they risk missing out on another major target.
