What does Sarri's interest in Christian Pulisic mean for Chelsea's attacking options?

Following Chelsea’s 3-0 demolition of Huddersfield last Saturday, worrying about their attacking options doesn’t seem a worthwhile task.

But in a report released from Goal.com, Maurizio Sarri has expressed his interest in signing Borussia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic.

This comes after reiterating his desire to bolster his attacking options, but only after pulling out of a deal for Nabil Fekir.

Chelsea were alerted of his possible availability this summer, and they weighed up a £65m bid for the American.

And for the moment, Chelsea look loaded in attack, with a new contract for Pedro, and Eden Hazard staying.

And with Willian still at the club and Callum Hudson-Odoi coming through, do Chelsea really need Pulisic?

Well, in short yes.

If Sarri wants to play like he did at Napoli with a converted-winger as a striker, it’ll most likely be Hazard filling that spot.

And on Saturday, Willian played on the left – a new role for him – and Pedro played on the right.

But Pulisic – only 19 years old – could bring some much needed youthfulness and creativity to an ageing Chelsea side.

Barcelona’s interest looks to have turned Willian’s head and Pedro has never been a consistent, first-choice player for Chelsea.

Pulisic has proved in two seasons in the Bundesliga that he has genuine world-class potential.

Despite the hefty price-tag, Pulisic could by Sarri’s “Jose Callejon” at Chelsea.
