Chelsea FC are closing in on a deal to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues are hoping to land the talented 20-year-old in a £60m deal, although a fee is not yet thought to have been agreed with Dortmund.

The same story says that the deal is likely to be for Pulisic to move to Stamford Bridge next summer, although it could be confirmed as early as next month.

Pulisic is widely regarded as one of the brightest attacking prospects in Europe and, according to the same story, he has indicated that he “wants to join” Chelsea FC.

However, the same article also points out that any deal to sign Pulisic is likely to cast doubt about the future of 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi, who is reportedly attracting interest from Bayern Munich.

Pulisic has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool FC having also been touted as a possible destination for him in the past.

The USA international has scored one goal and made two assists in 10 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund so far this season.

Chelsea FC are likely to be linked with a number of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window gives Maurizio Sarri the chance to strengthen his squad ahead of the second part of the campaign.
