Chelsea have been warned American international Christian Pulisic will leave the club if Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is signed.

Coutinho is set to leave Barcelona this summer, with Bayern Munich unwilling to pay out to sign him permanently and Chelsea are leading the race to sign the Brazilian.

“I would love to sit down with Jody Morris, who is a friend of mine, and you guys know I’m friends with Frank Lampard as well, and say why aren’t you offering these positions to Christian Pulisic?” Don Hutchison said on ESPN FC.

“Instead of scouring Europe for a number ten or someone who can play on either flank, you’ve got one in-house. They’ve got one already on the books at Chelsea.

“Invest a little bit more time in Christian Pulisic.

“I hear from the grapevine that he’s a little bit quiet and a little bit shy, maybe it’s time for Jody and Frank to coax that out of him and make him a team player and more demanding on the pitch.

“I’d like to know why Chelsea are going for Coutinho.

“I can’t imagine Christian Pulisic staying around if they do.”
