New Genoa head coach Andriy Shevchenko wants to sign Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic on loan, according to reports in Italy.
Shevchenko was appointed Genoa boss only last week but he has drawn up some extremely ambitious plans for the January transfer window.
Not only is Shevchenko targeting Pulisic, he wants to snap up fellow Ukrainian Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, AC Milan winger Samu Castillejo and Dynamo Kyiv’s Vitaliy Mykolenko.
Considering Genoa are currently languishing in 17th place, having picked up only nine points after 12 Serie A matches, it seems rather unlikely that Pulisic would be interested in moving to Italy.
The American international has certainly had his fair share of injury problems this season, but a loan move is unlikely to be considered by manager Thomas Tuchel.
If he stays fit, Pulisic is expected to get more starts after the international break, following cameo roles against Malmo and Burnley recently.
