Newcastle United might reportedly flip to Chelsea‘s Christian Pulisic as a possible attacking goal this summer time, in accordance with the most recent reviews.
What’s the phrase?
In response to journalist Chris Waugh – in a Q and A for The Athletic – the Magpies ‘would contemplate’ a transfer for the USA worldwide over the approaching weeks, albeit with doubts as as to whether the 23-year-old shall be ‘made out there’.
The previous Borussia Dortmund man – who signed for the Blues on £58m deal again in January 2019 – is dealing with an unsure future at Stamford Bridge amid reviews that supervisor Thomas Tuchel doesn’t belief him.
With simply two years left on his contract, a departure might probably be within the offing, though it stays to be seen how keen the west Londoners shall be to promote having already seen Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner depart the membership – leaving them considerably brief for attacking depth.
Hero at St James’?
With Pulisic presently chopping a pissed off determine below Tuchel, these at St James’ Park ought to nicely be able to pounce with the intention to tempt him right into a transfer to the northeast, with the 50-cap gem prone to play a much more distinguished function below Eddie Howe.
Dubbed a “nationwide hero” by Frank Khalid, there’s no purpose why the £37.8m-rated ace can’t assume a equally talismanic function have been he to hitch the Tynesiders earlier than the September deadline, together with his expertise there for all to see.
Likened to Chelsea icon Eden Hazard for his innate dribbling skill and low centre of gravity by pundit Paul Scholes, the £150k-per-week winger is just a real pure expertise and an actual pleasure to observe, with Newcastle supporters prone to thrive off his dynamic attacking shows.
The 5 foot 10 menace can mix that eye-catching fashion with a powerful attacking output, having scored 25 objectives and supplied 18 assists in 115 video games for his present aspect up to now, having beforehand chipped in with 45 aim contributions in 127 video games throughout his stint in Germany.
Such a powerful report will little doubt assist bolster Howe’s choices in assault, with the previous Bournemouth boss presently far too reliant on the deadly duo of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin to make the distinction within the ultimate third.
Wilson led the best way with eight objectives in all competitions final season, whereas the latter man topped the membership charts for assists with 5 throughout all fronts, with the membership little doubt in want of extra high quality figures who can shoulder that artistic burden.
Pulisic is seemingly the person to just do that, with the highly-rated “sensation”, as described by Bolarinwa Olajide, having supplied 13 aim contributions in complete final time period – greater than any Newcastle participant – regardless of having been restricted to only 21 begins.
With a daily run of video games below his belt who is aware of the injury that the American might inflict, with the ahead probably the person to grow to be the brand new hero of St James’ Park.
