A lot of expectations have been placed on January signing Christian Pulisic. The 20 year old signed for Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £58m.

With Hazard having left Chelsea for Real Madrid at the end of last season, Pulisic is seen as a replacement for Hazard by many.

Pulisic has now revealed that he looks up to the former Chelsea star and would also love to play with him.

“It is incredible to see what Eden can do,” the American told BBC Sport.

“He is a guy to look up to and what I would love to become.

“It is definitely a goal. Any player would be dumb not to want to be in the same team as him.”

Pulisic has revealed that coming to Chelsea is a dream come true for him and admitted that he looked up to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard during his playing days.

“When I think of this club, there’s a lot of great players that come to mind,” he continued to GAFFER.

“I grew up watching Frank Lampard and all of those guys at the top of their game in the Premier League and in the Champions League.

“To me, Chelsea were always one of the biggest teams and now to be playing here, it’s really come full circle from that moment. It feels amazing.”

Chelsea’s next game is against Japanese champions Kawasaki Frontale in Yokohama on Friday, before taking on Barcelona in Saitama next Tuesday.”
