Christian Pulisic says he is prepared to welcome any new arrivals at Chelsea, even if it means further competition for his first-team place.
The American has suffered indifferent form since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in the summer, while speculation continues to link the Blues with Jadon Sancho and Wilfried Zaha.
With competition in the forward positions at Chelsea already rife, a move for either Sancho or Zaha would threaten Pulisic’s involvement.
But even with teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi returning from injury, it is a prospect Pulisic claims he would relish.
Speaking after Chelsea’s draw with Brighton on New Years Day, he said: “Yeah I mean it is normal, teams look to improve their team and if players do come in there is competition, that is how it goes.
“So we’ll be ready for that and hopefully we’ll have players that come in and want to help us.”
