Rumours about Christian Pulisic to Chelsea have gathered momentum. As per reports, The Blues could buy the 20-year-old in this January transfer window. 

Now, with him coming into the club, one of the current wingers - Pedro or Willian - would most likely be sold. There were also talks about Willian being sold last summer transfer window, but The Blues had other plans.

It's not just Chelsea interested in the player, Jurgen Klopp is also plotting a move to reunite with the player. The player's contract expires at the end of 2020, and Dortmund tried to open negotiations to tie him down further.

However, it looks like the German club would want to now cash in on him while he is a hot property, and for sure Dortmund would find a lot of clubs interested in the American.

For the sake of this article, lets assume the 20-year-old winger will move to Chelsea, as we look at 3 ways The Blues could line-up should Pulisic move to England. 


#1 Hazard, Morata, Pulisic

This will be the most likely position the Dortmund winger would play in should he come to Chelsea. He plays in this position for Dortmund, and is comfortable. 

Comparing the current wingers with Pulisic, Pedro has 4 goals and 1 assist to his name, while Willian has 2 goals and 3 assists. The 20-year-old meanwhile has 1 goal and 2 assists in the German league so far this season.

If you judge by the numbers, it does not look like an upgrade to what Chelsea currently have. However, do not forget that the American winger is only 20-years-old, and has his whole future ahead of him.
