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.
