Christian Pulisic has taken one step closer to a Premier League switch with Chelsea set to announce his signature in the coming months, according to reports.

Chelsea’s attack has struggled to sputter into life at stages this season but USA international Pulisic, a predominantly right-sided attacker, has been identified as the tonic – so say the Daily Mail.

In fact, the deal with Borussia Dortmund could be confirmed as early as January, with the price tag thought to be around £60 million.

Should the Blues continue to resist Real Madrid’s advances for Eden Hazard, his link-up with Pulisic is a tantalising prospect – though it could spell curtains for youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 18-year-old England youth international, seen as the brightest prospect out of the Blues’ academy for some while, would be pushed down the pecking order further.

Maurizio Sarri may have to grant him more game time, or the club could maximise their profit in the coming transfer window with his contract set to expire in just 18 months’ time.
