Newcastle United want Christian Pulisic and have now contacted Chelsea to ask to be kept informed about a potential deal for the winger.

The Magpies have been desperately chasing attacking additions this summer but have been hitting dead end after dead end.

Names like Moussa Diaby and Alexander Isak have been heavily linked but have proven too expensive.

The same goes for James Maddison, Jack Harrison and many more with Newcastle entering the final weeks of the season needing another option.

Newcastle do have promising links to Chelsea though and the Blues could end up doing a deal with Eddie Howe’s men before the deadline.

Newcastle United want Christian Pulisic

We have seen Newcastle linked with a host of Chelsea players, such as Callum Hudson-Odoi, Armando Broja and Conor Gallagher.

Newcastle’s Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi were even invited to Stamford Bridge on Sunday and were spotted watching Chelsea against Tottenham.

That has sparked suggestions of a Chelsea player heading to Newcastle in the coming weeks.

Recent rumours have also linked Pulisic with a move to St James’ Park and that link is gathering pace.

The Telegraph report that Newcastle want to sign Pulisic and have now asked Chelsea about a potential move.

Pulisic looked like become a world-beater with Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea swooped with a £58million deal in 2019.

There have been glimpses of Pulisic’s quality but he hasn’t been able to impress on a consistent basis in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old has only been a substitute in Chelsea’s opening Premier League games, playing just 30 minutes.

That’s far from ideal for Pulisic and Newcastle may well be able to offer consistent playing time in Eddie Howe’s side.

This would surely only be a loan deal if it’s going to happen, and Pulisic may need some convincing given that he would be giving up the Champions League with Chelsea for Newcastle.
