Chelsea are looking for long-term solution to their goalscoring problems as they have failed to score many goals so far this season.
The Blues have found the back of the net in 38 occasions compared to City’s 54 and Liverpool’s 48.
In fact, most of the goals have come from midfielders including Eden Hazard, Jorginho and even N’Golo Kante.
Having seen the present form of his strikers, Maurizio Sarri is reportedly in the race for Borussia Dortmund’s youngster Christian Pulisic whom he believes will add some threat to his team’s unimpressive attacking frontline.
With Liverpool already out of the race for the American player, it was reported that the Blues stand a better chance of capturing his signature in January.
However, there is a major setback in Sarri’s desire to lure the 20-year-old to Stamford Bridge as latest rumour from a source close to the youngster revealed that Pulisic will join the West London club on one condition.
According to the source, Pulisic won’t join Chelsea unless the former Premier League Champions partway with their influential star Eden Hazard.
Pulisic’s condition is very much understandable as he didn’t want to be a bit-part player in Sarri’s team should he decide to join the Blues.
He lost his place in Dortmund’s first XI to Jadon Sancho and he is willing to avoid the same fortune at Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard is one of Chelsea’s most important player at the moment and I don’t see him leaving the team anytime soon.
Sarri will need to assure the youngster that he will get much game-time in his team as that might be the only way to get the USA prodigy.
