Chelsea have already identified their Christian Pulisic replacement

Chelsea have already identified their Christian Pulisic replacement.

No sooner has Christian Pulisic been shown out of the Stamford Bridge exit door than Chelsea have already identified his replacement.

The USMNT star has become one of a number of big-name Blues players that have been moved on by the club this summer.

Not content with the dramas of the last two transfer windows, owner Todd Boehly has made it a unique hat-trick, only this time it’s for outgoing rather than incoming players.

It isn’t clear at this point just how many players have wanted to leave the west London outfit and how many have been forced out, given that it’s believed that Chelsea are flying close to the wind with regards to keeping within Financial Fair Play boundaries.

In any event, Pulisic has now gone, and so the board of the club need to get to work to sign his replacement as the start of the new Premier League season is in just one month’s time.

Rayan Cherki, a star for Lyon, has reportedly been chosen as Christian Pulisic’s replacement, and as the accompanying DataMB chart demonstrates, he outperforms the American in every statistical category except assists.

As the player is rumored to be interested in moving to west London, the site also suggests that Lyon’s own FFP troubles are to blame for their decision to permit Cherki to potentially depart the club.

Although a trade is still a ways off, there is still time to complete one should the Blues pursue their initial interest.
