Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has reportedly agreed to join Newcastle United during the January transfer window The American star was hailed as one of the best and most exciting young wingers in world football – and his performances for Borussia Dortmund lead to Chelsea spending £58 million for the player.
However – despite some decent performances in that shirt – Pulisic has not hit the heights that many had hoped for and has fallen further down the pecking order after the arrival of Raheem Sterling That has led to some shock reports in the media which have claimed that he is ready to leave the club – and Chelsea are very much open to letting him leave Stamford Bridge if they receive the right offer.
Now – Reports in Spain have suggested representatives of the American international have suggested the winger would be willing to move from West London to the North East if the Magpies can agree a deal with their Premier League rivals.
A report in TodoFichajes has suggested United are willing to part with around £35 to complete a move for a player they showed a keen interest in during the summer transfer window. But amid all the speculation – boss Graham Potter has urged the winger to be fit and ready if he is called upon over the coming weeks. He told the Evening Standard:
“I am not saying I am right all the time, I am not but somebody has got to make the call. With Christian, I would say he has been fantastic around the place, been really good with teammates, and contributed against Wolves. “He is pushing for a place, pushing for a start. Things change quickly in football and he needs to be ready.”
