There are more Americans in Europe’s top-five leagues than ever before. As a result, there is more high-profile player movement in the United States men’s national team player pool during the summer transfer window.
Here are the players that have already changed clubs and the ones that are expected to move before the window closes on September 1.
Note: This story will be updated with the last USMNT transfer rumors and completed deals.
The English Premier League side has officially signed the USMNT goalkeeper to a four-year deal, the club announced Wednesday.
Turner joined storied EPL club Arsenal in June 2022, where he served as a backup to Aaron Ramsdale. Prior to that, he earned 108 appearances for the New England Revolution between 2016-22, a run that included him being named MLS Goalkeeper of the Year in 2021.
With 14 shutouts, Turner leads all USMNT goalkeepers for most clean sheets through their first 20 caps.
USMNT midfielder Musah and the Serie A club agreed on a five-year contract, the club announced on Aug. 4.
Musah, who won’t take up one of the non-EU slots on Milan’s roster, was moved for a fee of roughly $21.9 million and will wear No. 80 for his new club.
Musah has played 27 games with the USMNT, including all four games at the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Qatar.
Chelsea has agreed to transfer Pulisic to American-owned AC Milan, the team announced on July 13. Pulisic has signed a four-year deal with the club, with the Rossoneri retaining the option for a further season.
AC Milan reportedly paid less than a third of what Chelsea paid Borussia Dortmund for Pulisic in 2019. The 24-year-old midfielder-forward left the London club with a year left on his contract after struggling with injuries during his time there.
Lyon was also in the mix at one point, but Pulisic preferred a move to Milan, where he’ll play in the UEFA Champions League. He’s set to become the third American to play for the Rossoneri after Oguchi Onyewu and Sergiño Dest.
Aaronson shared on July 9 that has joined Union Berlin, which finished fourth in the Bundesliga and will play in the Champions League next season, on loan.
The 22-year-old joined Leeds last summer for a transfer fee of $30 million, and while he started his Premier League career on the right foot, his role diminished as Leeds changed managers and started piling up losses.
Aaronson tallied two goals and three assists in 36 appearances for Leeds last season.
Weah is heading to the Serie A side on a roughly $14 million transfer fee from Ligue 1 club Lille. Weah plays as a winger for the USMNT, but Juventus reportedly see him as a long-term solution wingback. Weah also played wingback for Lille last season.
Weah will join his USMNT teammate Weston McKennie at Juventus, assuming McKennie isn’t transferred himself. The Italy-based club finished seventh in Serie A after being penalized 10 points for false accounting. Without the deduction, they would have finished third and qualified for the Champions League.
After a successful loan spell at FC Groningen, Pepi has been transferred from Ausburg to PSV Eindhoven. Ausburg paid FC Dallas $20 million for Pepi in January 2022, which is still the highest transfer fee a European club has paid for an American MLS player. Pepi, 20, was not on the USMNT’s 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup roster.
In all competitions last season, Pepi recorded 12 goals and three assists for the last-placed Groningen. Ausburg, meanwhile, finished 15th in the Bundesliga, just a point shy of relegation. PSV finished second in the Eredivisie and will play in the Champions League next season.
Chelsea in active talks with USMNT midfielder Adams, who captained the national team during the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Qatar, per Fabrizo Romano. Chelsea also remains deadlocked in talks with Brighton & Hove Albion about Moisés Caicedo, per The Athletic.
Adams could function as either an insurance policy if a Caicedo deal does not get completed, or a high-quality backup to Caicedo and/or Conor Gallagher alongside Enzo Fernandez in Chelsea’s midfield.
