Chelsea linked with American star

Chelsea are preparing to make a move for Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic.

That is according to reports which suggest that talks are already ongoing with the German club about a £60 million transfer for the US international. The 20-year old has indicated that he wants to move to Chelsea next season, and the move could be confirmed as early as January.

Born in Pennsylvania, Pulisic, who is of Croatian descent, signed for Dortmund as a 16-year old in February 2015, and after making the breakthrough with their under-17 squad, made his Bundesliga debut a year later. He has since gone on to make 114 senior appearances for them, scoring 15 times.

He has also been capped 23 times for his country and has 9 international goals to his name, catching the eye recently in the international friendly against England at Wembley, where he was prominent, despite his side slipping to a three-goal defeat.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
