Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has begun talks
to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic,
according to reports.
Abramovich arrived in Antibes on Saturday to hold
discussions with Chelsea director Marina
Granovskaia about the club’s transfer plans for the
remainder of the window.
Having already acquired Jorginho from Napoli,
Abramovich and Granovskaia are working on
bolstering Maurizio Sarri’s squad even further ahead
of the new season.
According to the Mail on Sunday, Abramovich also
had a meeting with Dortmund to discuss a potential
deal for Pulisic.
The 19-year-old is one of the most coveted young
talents in Europe having already established himself
as a first-team regular at Dortmund
Last season, the United States international scored
five goals and registered seven assists in 42
appearances for the Bundesliga club.
Pulisic is also admired by Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool
even had an £11 million offer for the midfielder
rejected by Dortmund two years ago.
‘I like Christian, I’ve known him since he was a kid
and he’s still not really old,’ Klopp said last week
before Liverpool’s pre-season friendly against
Dortmund.
‘He’s a fantastic player and it’s deserved that people
think highly of him in America, in Germany it’s the
same.
‘If he wants to play in England one day or whatever
and he, for sure, has the chance to do so.
‘But in this moment he’s in a really good club for his
development. They know him already.’
Chelsea are also in talks with Juventus over potential
deals for Gonzalo Higuain, Daniele Rugani and Mattia
Caldara.
