Chelsea FC are still interested in a potential summer deal to sign Borussia Dortmund playmaker Christian Pulisic, according to a report.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues are keen on a swoop to sign the 19-year-old from the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window.

However, the west London side could find it difficult to lure the teenager to Stamford Bridge given Chelsea FC missed out on a Champions League spot last season.

Dortmund, on the other hand, finished in fourth place in the German top flight last term to ensure BVB will be competing in Europe’s premier club competition next term.

Chelsea FC could also face competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool FC and Manchester United for the United States international in the current transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp was in charge of Dortmund when Pulisic completed a move to the Westfalenstadion, which could give Liverpool FC the upper hand if the German club are willing to sell.

Pulisic scored fur goals and made five assists in 32 appearances in the Bundesliga last season to underline his rising status in German football.

Chelsea FC are still waiting to make their first summer signing of the transfer window.
