Pulisic admits he’s aiming to emulate ‘incredible’ Hazard at Chelsea

The 20-year-old became the most expensive American in history after the Blues paid £58m to secure the services of the talented youngster, and has revealed his admiration for current Blues star Hazard.

Pulisic has revealed he wants make a similar impact at Stamford Bridge as the Belgian has since his 2012 arrival from Lille, and hopes he gets the opportunity to play alongside the winge, with the 28-year-old being heavily linked with a summer move to Real Madrid.

“It is incredible to see what Eden can do,” Pulisic told the BBC.

“He is a guy to look up to and what I would love to become.

“It is definitely a goal. Any player would be dumb not to want to be in the same team as him.”
