Chelsea star open to joining mega-rich Newcastle United in January

Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic will be open to joining Newcastle United in January, according to Pete O’Rourke.

The USA international has started regularly at Chelsea since his move from Borussia Dortmund and is attracting interest from Newcastle United after a good World Cup with USA.

“Newcastle have definitely moved up the pecking order, I think, for players right now of where they want to go,” O’Rourke said.

“They can pay the big wages as well and I think it’s an attractive team that Eddie Howe has now built, so I’m sure for Christian Pulisic, it’s definitely something that he would consider, which maybe a couple of seasons ago, wouldn’t have been on his radar.”
