Chelsea Lodge ‘Official’ Bid For Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic

Chelsea have made an 'official' bid to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund.

According to the Evening Standard, unnamed sources in Germany have suggested that the Blues made contact with the German club on Friday to begin talks over a move for the 20-year-old USA international.

It is believed that Dortmund have slapped a £70m price tag to fend off interest in their rising star.

It has recently been reported that both Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri are keen to land the winger.

However, the Blues could face a challenge from the Reds for Pulisic, who favours a move to Anfield so that he can link back up with the former Dortmund manager.

"So far I can't say anything [on Zagadou's injury]," he said after Dortmund's 2-0 win against SC Freiburg (via ESPN). "I hope it's nothing bad because that would be a massive problem for us.

"Akanji and Pulisic are also injured and right now I don't know if they will be fit next week. It'll be close."

During the Freiburg match, the highly rated Jadon Sancho pulled off an incredible bit of skill for Dortmund.

Should Pulisic stay at Dortmund next season?
