Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic has signed for Chelsea in a €64m deal

The USA forward has been widely tipped to join Chelsea recently following an impressive two-year stint in Germany at Dortmund.

Pulisic himself refused to rule out a Premier League move in November with Liverpool and Tottenham having also been linked with him.

However, Chelsea have won the race for the 20-year-old’s signature but will loan him back to Dortmund until the end of the season.

“It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League,” said BVB sporting director Michael Zorc on the club website.

“That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract.

“Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.

“Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates Borussia Dortmund.”

Pulisic has managed 15 goals and 24 assists in 115 appearances for Dortmund across all competitions.
