‘Terribly overrated’ – These Chelsea fans not impressed with £70m-rated starlet being linked with move

Chelsea are reportedly set to land the signing of Borussia Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic, but the rumour hasn’t gone down well across the board with their fans.

As noted by the Daily Mail, it’s suggested that the Blues are set to fend off both Liverpool and Tottenham in their bid to sign the 20-year-old, who has been given a valuation of £70m.

While there is no doubt that the USA international is a talented young player, that touted fee seems hugely inflated given he hasn’t really proven himself at the highest level on a consistent basis yet.

Pulisic has managed just 15 goals in 107 games for Dortmund, while he’s got nine goals in 22 caps for the US national team.

In turn, that would suggest that he has a bright future ahead for club and country, but it’s not enough to convince the Chelsea fans below that it’s smart business from their perspective.

With the Mail suggesting that the Premier League giants could look to wrap up a deal in January to bolster Maurizio Sarri’s attacking options, it remains to be seen if they’re left disappointed by the signing.

Nevertheless, it’s worth noting that Sarri has helped countless players improve during his managerial career at the likes of Empoli, Napoli and now Chelsea, and so perhaps the Italian tactician’s possible influence on Pulisic if he does arrive shouldn’t be underestimated.

Should the signing go through as tipped in the report above though, these fans will take some convincing that it’s a good move it seems…
