Dortmund have agreed to let star winger Christian Pulisic join Chelsea at the end of the season.

The American has been chased by several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Liverpool, but Chelsea have stolen a march on their rivals.

Chelsea are increasingly resigned to losing Eden Hazard and wanted Pulisic to join in January to boost their Champions League hopes and therefore their chances of keeping the Belgian.

However, Dortmund were unwilling to let the 20-year-old leave in the winter market but have instead agreed to let him move to Stamford Bridge this summer according to BILD.

The two clubs have reportedly settled on a £45m fee for the winger and he will arrive at the end of the season.

Chelseas capture of Pulisic will be a blow to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who is a long-term admirer of the midfielder.

Pulisics arrival does spell question marks over the future of Hazard, who has postponed making a decision on signing a new deal at the club until the summer.

Hazard has 18 months left on his deal at Stamford Bridge but has openly admitted hes torn between signing a fresh contract or joining dream club Real Madrid.
