Christian Pulisic is attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, and the United States international has been told by Alexi Lalas that it is “time for a change”.

At just 20 years of age, the highly-rated midfielder is already into a fourth season as a senior star at Borussia Dortmund.

He has made over 100 appearances for the Bundesliga club and has become a leader for his country just 23 caps into a promising career.

And Chelsea seems to have upped their pursuit in recent weeks with reports claiming the west London club have lodged a £70m bid for his services.

“You always want to see quality players at your football club, of course I’d like to see him at Chelsea over Liverpool,” Wise exclusively told Starsport at the launch of the first ‘Sportsperson with a Personality Award’, sponsored by kwiff.

“I want to see someone who’s able to score lots of goals.”

Pulisic’s current contract with Dortmund is only due to run until the summer of 2020, so they may be forced into a sale at some point.

They can demand a hefty fee for his services at this stage, but the strength of their hand in talks will start to wane as terms run down.
