Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to respond to rumours linking them with a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic to replace the ageing Pedro and Willian, according to the Daily Mail.
The American international began his career with the Bundesliga leaders at the age of 16 and has made over 100 appearances for the club, scoring 15 goals. However, the player and club have hit an impasse in negotiations over a new contract, with Pulisic refusing to engage.
The 20-year-old is a hugely promising talent, and is a full international with 22 caps and nine goals for his country. In Chelsea’s respect, their wing options are beginning to creak with both the aforementioned Pedro and Willian at an age of 31 and 30 respectively.
Whilst they are decent options for now, that area needs some investment, and a deal for Pulisic – Nike’s US poster boy and a valuable marketing option – looks very intriguing and one that should be done for a cut-price as a result of the contract renewal implications.
Let’s take a look at what Chelsea fans think of any potential deal…
What people are not realizing is that Chelsea will make a profit off that signing with the jerseys they will sell in the USA. Price may seem steep upfront but this would be an excellent move

Why are Chelsea fans disappointed in the Pulisic deal? Yeah there's other better options out there but he's a massive upgrade on Willian and Pedro, still only 20 as well. He can fulfill his potential here

With both Willian and Pedro above 30 now, we should realistically be looking for two wingers soon anyway. So signing Pulisic could still be a good move if we also get in someone more established to make an immediate impact.

Willian and Pedro right now are better players than Pulisic. Sarri is not going to play anybody off of potential. We should all know that by now.

Hazard gone next summer and Pedro and Willian a year older. Pulisic could be winger for the future. Also him playing under Sarri would be amazing for his development
