first_img Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January getty Pulisic was linked with Liverpool in the summer but, according to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are now in pole position to tie up a deal.He is out of contract in 2020 and having rejected the offer of a new deal, Dortmund have accepted they have to sell.The German giants would prefer to cash in at the end of the season but the Mail claims Chelsea will look to get a deal done in January due to the threat of a transfer ban from FIFA.There had been talk of a price in the region of £70m previously, but that may have come down with the prospect of losing him for nothing in 2020. Before the international friendly against the Three Lions, Pulisic suggested he would be open to playing in England.He said: “England, the Premier League, is where lots of kids dream of playing so there is no reason why one day I won’t play here.”“We are having a great year at Dortmund and I am enjoying every moment of that.“Then when the time comes for me to talk in the breaks about my future, that’s when those things will happen.”Although Pulisic is one of the Bundesliga’s rising stars, he is struggling for first-team football at the Westfalenstadion because of the stunning form of Jadon Sancho – who has been named the league’s Player of the Month for October.
