Christian Pulisic reportedly wants to stay at Chelsea this season beyond the January transfer window.

The Daily Mail recently claimed that Newcastle United, Manchester United and Arsenal are all monitoring the 24-year-old Blues player.

It’s been a difficult season so far for Pulisic, who has really struggled for starts at Stamford Bridge.

The United States international is impressing for his country at the World Cup right now, but he’s not enjoyed the same success in recent months when in Chelsea colours.

In fact, ESPN previously reported that Thomas Tuchel was prepared to sell Pulisic. He’s since been replaced as manager by Graham Potter, though.

Pulisic wants to stay at Chelsea

Journalist Florian Plettenberg reports that Pulisic now hopes to stay with Chelsea for the rest of the season despite interest in his signature.

Plettenberg claimed on Twitter: “Rumours about Dortmund, [Manchester] United & Newcastle not hot. Been told that he wants to stay at [Chelsea] in winter! He really tends to this plan. But: Talks could take place if he would receive a great and interesting offer after the World Cup. But it’s unlikely.”

Pulisic can be a real weapon in the Chelsea line-up when he’s fit and firing, something he’s shown in the past with some purple patches of form.

Unfortunately, the £58million winger hasn’t been able to find any kind of real consistency during the last few years with the Blues, so fans often grow quite frustrated with him.

He’s mainly been restricted to cameo performances from the bench since Potter took charge as Tuchel’s successor, but it sounds like he wants to impress him post-World Cup.

Described as “super talented” by Leeds United’s Tyler Adams, Pulisic is one of the Chelsea representatives at the World Cup you can bet Potter is keeping a close eye on.
