Newcastle remain interested in Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic ahead of the January window according to The Mail. The American was one of a number of Blues Newcastle reportedly sought to bring in on loan over the summer.
Reports at the time claimed Pulisic was devastated that he wasn’t allowed to leave Stamford Bridge on loan sensing his opportunities would be limited again under then-manager Thomas Tuchel. After the German’s sacking in September, Brighton’s Graham Potter was appointed to right the ship.
Pulisic saw a slight uptick in chances making 5 of his 6 starts since Potter’s arrival. However, the Chelsea squad is a tough one to crack and starts have remained elusive for the former-Dortmund star.
Pulisic is entering the final 18 months of his contract with no talks on the horizon for an extension. The Mail suggests Chelsea could be open to offloading Pulisic in January should an offer approaching his £35m valuation arrives.
It is unlikely Newcastle make a permanent move for the United States international in the winter window. Though a loan with a purchase option could be a tempting proposition for all parties involved.
Manchester United and Arsenal are also keen on Pulisic, who starred for the US over the weekend in the scoreless draw against England. It seems a long shot Pulisic will land on Tyneside, though he would be a superb addition to Eddie Howe’s squad if some sort of an agreement can be reached.
