Christian Pulisic has admitted that he cannot wait to line up with N’Golo Kante at Chelsea FC next season.

The 20-year-old is set to officially complete his transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer from Borussia Dortmund after the deal was agreed in the January transfer window.

The USA international, who will feature for the last time for Dortmund this weekend, has scored four goals and made three assists in 19 Bundesliga games so far this term.

The attacker will be relishing the chance to prove himself in the Premier League as he links up with the likes of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho at the west London club.

And with Eden Hazard’s future still looking unclear, Pulisic has named Kante as the player that he cannot wait to line up alongside.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea TV, Pulisic said: “There’s so many good players here. I’m really excited to play with N’Golo Kante. I’m excited to meet him, I love him as a player.

“The backline too, Luiz, Rudiger and those guys.

“It feels amazing I’m super excited. I can’t wait.”

Chelsea FC still have the chance to end the season with some silverware when they take on Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku on 29 May.

The Blues finished in third place in the Premier League table to secure their spot in next season’s Champions League regardless of the result of the Europa League final against the Gunners.
