United States international Christian Pulisic has admitted he couldn’t turn down the chance of joining Chelsea.

Pulisic joined Chelsea from Dortmund for a fee of £57.6 million back in January 2019.

“I always wanted to play in Europe,” Pulisic told BT Sport.

“Going to Dortmund was definitely a perfect first step for me. It was awesome, and I learned so much. I grew up there – I went over there when I was 15.

“Now, to be here and come to the Premier League when I was 20, I think it all worked out very well so I’m really happy with the path.

“I was confident and felt like I had a good couple of years in the Bundesliga, and obviously with the opportunity to come to a club like Chelsea – it was just something I couldn’t turn down.

“I just felt like the timing was perfect and I’m really happy that I made that choice.”
