Lille (FRA) to Juventus (ITA)

Following one of his busiest professional seasons yet, forward Tim Weah made the jump from France to legendary Italian club Juventus on July 1.

Last fall, the winger became the 23rd USMNT player to score at the World Cup, netting the lone goal against Wales for a crucial 1-1 draw in the USA’s Qatar 2022 opener. At the club level, Weah set career bests with 18 starts and 1747 minutes in Ligue 1. During his time with Lille, he helped Les Dogues win their first title in 10 years in 2020-21 and made his UEFA Champions League debut the following season. 

Wearing No. 22 with Juventus, Weah joins U.S. midfielder Weston McKennie at the club.

Weah kicks off the Serie A season on Aug. 20 vs. Udinese.

Augsburg (GER) to PSV Eindhoven (NED)

Despite a slow start to his European career with Augsburg in winter 2022, forward Ricardo Pepi made waves in the Dutch Eredivisie with Groningen last season. Joining on a season-long loan for the 2022-23 campaign, El Tren was a bright spot in a tough season for the club which finished last and was relegated to the Eerste Divisie. Pepi led the team in scoring with 13 goals across all competitions and his 12 league goals were tied for seventh in the Dutch top-flight.

Pepi’s performance caught the eye of Dutch power PSV Eindhoven, who signed the El Paso native on July 7 to a contract through the 2027-28 season.

PSV won a trophy in Pepi’s competitive debut, a 1-0 victory against Feyenoord on Aug. 4 in the Johan Cruyff Shield, played between the previous season’s league and cup winners.

The 20-year-old striker will wear No. 14 and has a chance to make his debut in European competition this fall as PSV is amid UEFA Champions League qualifying. The club is currently in the third of four qualifying rounds, but even if it loses it will be entered in the UEFA Europa League group stage.

PSV kicks off the Eredivisie season on Aug. 12 vs. Utrecht.

Loan from Leeds United (ENG) to Union Berlin (GER)

After Leeds United was relegated during forward Brenden Aaronson’s first Premier League campaign last season, the New Jersey native will take on a new top-five league as he dons the No. 7 and joins Union Berlin in the German Bundesliga.

Following a strong 2022-23 campaign, Aaronson will play in the UEFA Champions League with Union Berlin as the club makes its competition debut. Die Eiseren finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season, its best finish since earning promotion for the first time in 2019.  The U.S. winger previously played on Europe’s biggest stage with Red Bull Salzburg during the 2021-22 season, making 10 appearances and netting two goals.

After becoming the first American to win and play in a UEFA Champions League Final with Chelsea, forward Christian Pulisic will take on a new challenge this season with Italian giant AC Milan. Announced on July 13, the USMNT’s talismanic attacker signed a contract through the 2026-27 season with the option to extend through 2028. The Rossoneri will compete in the Champions League after finishing fourth in Serie A last season and reaching the UCL Semifinals.

Wearing No. 11 for the Rossoneri, Pulisic already netted his first goal for his new club, the opening tally during a 1-1 draw and ensuing 6-5 penalty kick win against AC Monza in the inaugural Trofeo Silvio Berlusconi, a new preseason friendly to honor the former Italian prime minister who passed away earlier this summer.

LASK opens the 2023-24 league campaign at home on Aug. 12 against FC Blau-Weiß Linz.

Troyes (FRA) to Panathinaikos (GRE)

Following a number of loan spells across Europe, defender Erik Palmer-Brown found a consistent club home with Troyes in the French Ligue 1 from 2021-23. He played all 38 league matches last season, but the clubs 19th-place finish saw it relegated to Ligue 2.

Now, Palmer-Brown heads to a powerhouse in Greece with Panathinaikos, signing a contract through the 2026-27 season on Aug. 2. The Shamrock are one of Greece’s most successful clubs, finishing second in the Greek Super League last season and are guaranteed European competition this fall.

The United States will be his fifth stop on the world tour of his young career, having had previous stints at Schalke in Germany and Mallorca in Spain.

Last season, Musah helped Valencia escape relegation with a 16th-place finish in La Liga. He broke through at a remarkably early age for the club, making regular impact appearances during the start of the 2020-21 season at just 17 years old, which earned him his first USMNT call-up in November 2020.

Now, the cheerful midfielder will have his first opportunity to play in the UEFA Champions League with AC Milan. He’ll wear No. 80 with the Rossoneri in homage to Brazilian legend Ronaldinho, who wore 80 during three seasons in Milan from 2008-2011.

Wright kicked off his career abroad in the German Bundesliga with Schalke and bounced around a few clubs before finding his footing with Turkey’s Antalyaspor, netting 29 goals in two seasons with the club. In 2022-23, Wright’s 15 goals were tied for sixth in the league. Named to the USA’s 2022 FIFA World Cup roster, the center forward pulled one back late in the USMNT’s 3-1 Round of 16 defeat to the Netherlands.

Coventry finished fifth in the Championship last season, reaching the promotion play-off final before falling to Luton Town (and USMNT goalkeeper Ethan Horvath) in penalties. Wright will aim to help the Sky Blues return to the Premier League for the first time since 2000-01.

Wearing No. 11, Wright made his Coventry City debut just two days after signing, coming on as a second-half substitute in Coventry’s league opener vs. Leicester City on Aug. 6.

Arsenal (ENG) to Nottingham Forest (ENG)

As he begins his second season abroad, goalkeeper Matt Turner is primed for an opportunity to start in the English Premier League with a move to Nottingham Forest. After spending most of last season as a back-up at Arsenal during its EPL runner-up campaign, Turner completed a move to Forest on Aug. 9, signing a contract through the 2026-27 season.

Afterwards, he was named to the 2023 Gold Cup roster as a back-up to starting ‘keeper Matt Turner.

Now, he’ll be minding the net for the Pandas, who finished 15th in Belgium last season. He could make his European first-division debut as early as Aug. 13 when Eupen takes on Belgian power Club Brugge.
