Chelsea have agreed a £57.5m deal with Borrussia Dortmund for the signing of American midfielder Christian Pulisic, this is according to reports.
Pulisic has been on the transfer radar of Chelsea even before the opening of the January transfer window and the London club have now realised their dream of signing the talented player.
He will remain with Dortmund on a loan spell until the end of the season before joining the Blues.
Before the move, Liverpool and Arsenal were linked with the USA international but they have to look elsewhere to bolster their squad.
Dortmund had made offers to the player but he knocked back the same offers. The Signa Iduna Park have released a statement confirming this report.
“It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract,” Michael Zorc said.
“Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.”
“Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates Borussia Dortmund. ” He added.
