Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic is joining Chelsea in a £57.6million deal.
The agreement will see Pulisic loaned back to the German club for the remainder of the 2018/2019 season.
“It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract.
“Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity,” BVB sporting director, Michael Zorc, told the club’s official website on Wednesday.
Pulisic has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks.
The United States international lost his place under Lucien Favre, following the emergence of England international, Jadon Sancho.
