Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea will be landing a quality signing when they welcome Christian Pulisic to Stamford Bridge in summer 2019.
Pulisic has joined Chelsea but will be loaned back to the German club, Borrusia Dortmund, for the remainder of the season, the Bundesliga club have announced.
It is reported that the Blues will pay £58milion for the USA international.

The 20-year-old joined BVB as a youth player in 2015 and has made just over 100 appearances for the club, and was repeatedly linked with a switch to Anfield to work under ex-Dortmund boss Klopp.

Nonetheless, Klopp believes Maurizio Sarri will be getting on his hands on a truly top talent when he switches the Westfalenstadion for Stamford Bridge on July 1.
