Christian Pulisic is confident he will be a success at Chelsea and has revealed what qualities he will bring to Frank Lampard’s side this season.
Pulisic officially joined Chelsea back in January, completing a £58m move from Borussia Dortmund, before the 20-year-old returned to the German club on loan for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
Having finally linked up with his new teammates, the USA international says moving to one of the Premier League‘s biggest clubs and working under Frank Lampard ‘feels amazing’, having grown up as an avid fan of English football.
“When I think of this club, there’s a lot of great players that come to mind,” Pulisic told GAFFER Magazine.

“I grew up watching Frank Lampard and all of those guys at the top of their game in the Premier League and in the Champions League.
“To me, Chelsea were always one of the biggest teams and now to be playing here, it’s really come full circle from that moment. It feels amazing.”
Much will be expected of Pulisic following his big-money move, with Chelsea hoping the winger can help fill some of the creative void left by Eden Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid.
Pulisic is confident he has the ‘tools’ to become a success at the club, with the youngster believing his ‘speed and creativity’ can help benefit Lampard’s side next season.
“I think I have a lot of speed and creativity that I can bring to the game; quickness and different attacking abilities that can really help the team,” he added.
“I think I have some tools that can really do well in this league [Premier League]. I just can’t wait.”
