Christian Pulisic’s has been full of praise in the past for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who Chelsea are now reportedly considering signing.

The club are currently contemplating making a bid for the Gabonese international, with them only having Armando Broja as a recognised striker going into next season.

It is likely Kai Havertz starts the season in a false nine role, with Timo Werner rumoured to be leaving the club this summer.

However, attacking places will be up for grabs, with the American one of those looking to cement his spot in side.

He played with Aubameyang under current Blues boss Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund, enjoying great success as teammates in the Bundesliga.

The striker enjoyed many great moments at Chelsea’s rivals Arsenal, however arguably his greatest came at Pulisic’s expense.

The winger opened the scoring in the 2020 FA Cup final, before a brilliant solo performance from the current Barcelona striker saw him saw twice to win Mikel Arteta’s side the cup.

Prior to that game, the 23-year-old had admitted that he is a massive advocate of the striker, which Chelsea fans may look to now if they’re wondering if he’s a good signing for them.

He said: “I know him quite well. He is incredible, the way he gets in good areas. He’s always dangerous, so we are definitely going to have to be cautious of that & they have some other good players, but he is definitely one guy you have to look out for.”

While the signing may not be the most inspiring name for the Blues to bring in, an experienced striker with a proven Premier League goalscoring record is exactly what the club needs, as they look to continue to develop the skills of Broja, with the hopes that the Albanian can become a regular option soon.
