Chelsea sudden favourites to sign BVB winger Christian Pulisic

Chelsea are sudden favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea look to have won the battle to sign 20-year-old Pulisic.

The Blues are in a hurry and will push for the deal to be done in January – particularly with the threat of a transfer ban from FIFA looming, over their alleged recruitment of under-age players.

Pulisic would be an addition to the squad, not a replacement for any individual. His recruitment would not make it any more likely that Eden Hazard will leave for Real Madrid.

"England, the Premier League, is where lots of kids dream of playing so there is no reason why one day I won't play here," Pulisic said before England's match with the United States.

"We are having a great year at Dortmund and I am enjoying every moment of that. Then when the time comes for me to talk in the breaks about my future, that's when those things will happen."
