Word stemming from the media on Sunday points towards no fewer than three of Chelsea’s Premier League rivals expressing a keen interest in the signature of an enigmatic member of the club’s frontline.
The player in question? Christian Pulisic.
Wide-man Pulisic’s impressive form at the World Cup to date is understood to have piqued attentions across the English football landscape, in a timely reminder of the unquestionable potential boasted by the 24-year-old when firing on all cylinders.
With Pulisic’s future in west London remaining up in the air heading into the final 18 months of his contract, suitors, in turn, have begun to emerge.
As per a report from the Daily Mail, all of Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle United are keeping a close eye on the former Borussia Dortmund standout’s situation with a view to the January transfer window.
The latter pair both also expressed an interest in landing the American during the summer.
Arsenal, meanwhile, on the lookout for reinforcements on the flanks, view Pulisic as a potential mid-season reinforcement, amid the club’s ongoing push for the title in England’s top-flight.
And such a departure from Stamford Bridge, it would appear, cannot be ruled out.
This comes with the powers that be at Chelsea weighing up Pulisic’s sale, in a bid to secure maximum return for his services before the attacker enters the final 12 months of his contract next summer.
