Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is refusing to join Lyon and is holding out for a move to AC Milan, according to reports.
The United States international is one of several players leaving Stamford Bridge this summer having struggled to make an impact last season.
Pulisic is not short of offers and AC Milan submitted a £12 million bid for the 24-year-old, who has just a year left on his deal with Chelsea.
However, Lyon entered the race with a significantly better proposal as they are willing to pay Chelsea a £21.5m fee, which includes performance-related add-ons.
But according to MailOnline, Pulisic has told Chelsea that he will not join Lyon and is intent on moving to AC Milan.
The report claims that Pulisic has made it clear that Lyon is not an option for him this summer, regardless of their offer.
Meanwhile, The Athletic reports that Chelsea would be ‘reluctant’ to let Pulisic leave for lower than Lyon’s £21.5m offer.
Pulisic was signed in a £57.6m deal from Borussia Dortmund in 2019 but after an impressive debut season the winger has found it difficult to establish a regular starting role.
