1. Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic is certainly the hottest prospect in the USA right now. This is why there was plenty of hype surrounding his name when Chelsea signed him. He started life at Stamford Bridge relatively slow as he had a hard time making an impression to his new fan base.

However, as the weeks went on, Pulisic was growing into his new role well. There certainly seems to be a future for him in the Premier League, he just needs to work hard in order to add some stability to his play.

Pulisic is a rapid forward who loves to dribble with the ball at his feet. He is a direct player which makes him perfect for Lampard’s system. The only reason why he wasn’t a sure starter this season is that the likes of Willian were too good to remove from the starting XI.

It’s essentially chip-paper news that Willian be leaving as a free agent this summer, it’s just a matter of where he will end up. This can only come as good news for Pulisic though because it means he will naturally get more time in the starting XI.

It’s also good news for Chelsea because if Pulisic can add some consistency to his game and become a sure starter, then not only are they sorted in regards of Willian leaving, but they are also sorted for the future.
