Christian Pulisic says it will be a dream come true to make his Premier League debut with Chelsea.
United States international Pulisic agreed a £57.7million move to Stamford Bridge from Borussia Dortmund in January but remained on loan with the Bundesliga club.
Title-chasing Dortmund play their final game of the campaign against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday, with winger Pulisic set to link up with Maurizio Sarri’s Blues in pre-season.
“It feels amazing and I’m super excited to get started,” Pulisic told Chelsea’s website. “Obviously I have a season to finish off (with Dortmund) but I’m definitely looking forward to being here.
“I can’t wait, it’s going to be an amazing experience. A little change for me but to be in England and be able to speak English…I’m thrilled.
“I’ve been waiting a long time for this. It has been one of my biggest dreams to be here and play in the Premier League. To be a Chelsea player is a huge honour and I’m obviously really excited.”
Pulisic has scored four times and provided three assists in 19 Bundesliga appearances this season.
The 20-year-old could still arrive in London a German champion, if Dortmund win this weekend and leaders Bayern Munich lose to Champions League-chasing Eintracht Frankfurt.
