Chelsea completed the signing of Christian Pulisic in January, and the American international has joined the squad for pre-season ahead of his first year in English football.
Chelsea spent £57.6m to sign Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in January before allowing him to see out the season in Germany. This was a good one by the club as the Blues were then slapped with a transfer ban not too long after.
Pulisic is a highly rated young player, and David Luiz who is among the senior players in the team has revealed that the players will try to help him settle quickly at the club.
“Pulisic is another top player, top talent, and young,” said the Brazilian.
“He just finished the last tournament very well, trying to do the best for the USA. For sure we’re going to wait for him here to help him develop as soon as possible.”
Lampard has already been impressed by the 20-year-old who has decided to join up with the Chelsea squad earlier than planned having been in action for the USA at the Gold Cup this month.
“Christian joins us on Tuesday,” said the Chelsea manager.
“He’s had a short break, but he wanted to get back with us quickly, which I certainly appreciate.”
“I appreciate that [coming straight off the Gold Cup], it’s how I would have been.
“It’s a big move for him to a huge club. He’s a top young player.
“He’s only going to go one way in terms of his career – he’s going to go up and be a big signing for Chelsea. I hope so. I look forward to working with him.
“It’s important we start the season as well as we can. I know we have injuries – people back at Cobham now that are influential players for us at similar positions, so we’ll need him.”
