Christian Pulisic is ready for extra competition for places at Chelsea

Christian Pulisic says the Chelsea squad are ready to compete with any new signings the club make in January.

Chelsea are able to strengthen in the January window with their FIFA transfer ban having been lifted on appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Head coach Frank Lampard though says the club will only add players he believes can fit his blueprint for the Stamford Bridge club’s future.

Pulisic arrived from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and insisted Chelsea’s current players would welcome extra competition for places should the club dip into the transfer market this month.

“It is normal that teams look to improve and and if players do come in there is competition, that is how it goes,” said Pulisic.

“So we’ll be ready for that and hopefully we’ll have players that come in and want to help us.”
