Check out the best American footballers currently playing for European clubs.
American players are increasingly making their mark on the global stage, with many now plying their trade in top European leagues.
In this article, we’ll delve into the best American soccer players who have ventured across the Atlantic to compete in some of the most prestigious leagues in Europe.
5- Sergino Dest (PSV Eindhoven)
Dest returned to Barcelona after his unsuccessful loan spell at AC Milan last season. But the Catalans decided against keeping him in their squad for the 2023-24 campaign.
Dest, who first rose to prominence playing for Ajax, will return to Eredivisie, joining PSV Eindhoven on a year-long loan deal with an option to buy.
4- Matt Turner (Nottingham Forest)
Turner’s move from New England to Arsenal didn’t earn him much playing time in the Premier League. But it was enough to convince another English side, Nottingham Forest, to sign him ahead of the 2023-24 season.
Turner is expected to become Forest’s No.1 keeper as they aim to avoid another relegation battle this season.
3- Gio Reyna (Borussia Dortmund)
Reyna is widely considered among the most promising youngsters in the Bundesliga. Fitness problems prevented the USMNT midfielder from securing a starting spot at Signal Iduna Park last season.
The 2023-24 season could be a crucial one for Reyna as he hopes to regain his best form under Edin Terzic.
2- Tim Weah (Juventus)
Weah attracted interest from a number of top European clubs with his brilliant displays for Ligue 1 side Lille. It was Juventus who eventually signed the American winger on a €11.3m deal ahead of the 2023-24 season.
As Juve hope to reclaim their place among the Serie A elite, Weah is expected to play a curial role in their attacking line.
1- Christian Pulisic (AC Milan)
Pulisic finally ended his four-year stay at Chelsea to secure a €20m move to Milan. The winger’s limited playing time at Chelsea convinced him to look for a new club before the current season.
The American forward will play alongside his countryman Yunus Musah at Milan as the Rossoneri prepare for another Scudetto push this season.
