Tony Cascarino fears for the days of Christian Pulisic Chelsea are numbered but confident their old club have already found the ideal replacement.

The USA international initially impressed after his £50m move from Borussia Dortmund and cemented his status as a key player under Frank Lampard.

However, Pulisic has never fully recovered from the hamstring strain he sustained in the FA Cup final against Arsenal two years ago and has struggled to gain the full trust of Lampard’s successor Thomas Tuchel.

The pair worked together at Dortmund but Tuchel has struggled to find a permanent spot for Pulisic in his starting line-up and has even used him in an unfamiliar full-back role.

Expecting a hectic summer, Chelsea are likely open to offers for Pulisic as well as fellow players Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

According to reports Raheem Sterling has become a key target for Chelsea and the England international is said to be keen on a move from Manchester City as long as he has a guarantee of regular first-team football.

Former Chelsea striker Cascarinio is disappointed with how things have turned out for Pulisic but is confident Sterling would be a significant improvement.

He told talkSPORT: “I really thought Pulisic would be a great player for Chelsea when he signed for £50m. I really thought he would be a top player for them. But it didn’t really work out for him because of an injury.

“One thing Raheem has is that he is very durable and has touch wood, he was injury free. He’s a very durable player. You can also swap him out on the right side so he’s a little more versatile as a player.

“I could see Chelsea trying to get such a wide player for Tuchel, absolutely. Why not? He creates his numbers, he only stretches teams, Tempo always stretches teams.

“If you want to counter teams, Raheem is good in the counter attack game because he’s so devastating with his space.”
