Brenden Aaronson has told MLS Soccer that he hopes he can follow in the footsteps of Chelsea ace Christian Pulisic, by being an American success in the Premier League at Leeds. Aaronson was announced last week, by the Whites.

The 21-year-old joins the club for a fee in the region of £24million from RedBull Salzburg. He could immediately be joined by another Salzburg star, in the form of Rasmus Kristensen – who has been recently linked.

The midfielder has finally put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Leeds – after the Whites tried to sign him in January. However, they saw two bids had been rejected. Now, Leeds have got their man.

It sees the American connection at Leeds strengthen again. Jesse Marsch, and the San Francisco 49ers upstairs. It also sees the Premier League bring in another American, and Aaronson hopes he can mirror Pulisic’s success.

“Even Christian had a big transfer fee, and a lot of these guys have all over the world,” said Aaronson. “Everybody has to deal with it. So it’s not like I can’t. I believe in myself, and I believe that I can be worth that. And I can help Leeds.”

Aaronson hopes to follow Pulisic at Leeds: Good value for money?

Chelsea bought Pulisic for a whopping £58million (MLS Soccer) and while he has enjoyed plenty of success, his injuries and lack of momentum has seen him stutter at times. Aaronson has cost less than half.

While Pulisic is a better player, Aaronson arguably fits Leeds better. That hard-working graft expected at Elland Road is something Aaronson has in abundance. At 21, for just £24million, Leeds have got good value for money.
