Pulisic 'excited' to start playing with Chelsea's Kante, Luiz, Rudiger

Christian Pulisic named N'Golo Kante, David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger as the teammates he is most looking forward to playing alongside at Chelsea.

Eden Hazard did not make Pulisic's list in his first official interview as a Chelsea player, fuelling speculation that the Belgian will leave the club this summer.

Speaking on Sunday, Hazard revealed that he has decided his future and is "waiting" for Chelsea to act on his wishes, after sources told ESPN FC that he would like his desired move to Real Madrid to be finalised as soon as possible.

Asked which Chelsea players he is most looking forward to meeting up with, Pulisic told the club's official website: "There are so many great players here already and I can't wait to work with them all.

"I'm excited to play alongside N'Golo Kante, I think he's a fantastic player and I can't wait to meet him. Also there's the guys in the backline, players like David Luiz and [Toni] Rudiger, I'm looking forward to working with them and I think it's going to be really cool."

Pulisic signed for Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund for £57.6 million in January, but was allowed to remain in Germany for the remainder of the Bundesliga season in order to help his former club in their title race with Bayern Munich.

Dortmund are poised to finish an agonising second to Bayern heading into the final day, but Pulisic is already looking ahead to the success he hopes to achieve at Chelsea from next season onwards.

"It feels amazing and I'm super excited to get started with Chelsea," he added.

"Obviously I have a season to finish off with Dortmund but I'm definitely looking forward to be here [with Chelsea]. It's going to be an amazing experience, one I can't wait for, and to be here in England, speaking English again and meeting all the guys is something I'm thrilled for.

"I've been waiting a long time for this and playing in the Premier League has been one of my biggest dreams. To be a Chelsea player is a huge honour and something I'm really excited for."

Pulisic settled impressively at Dortmund after moving to Germany from the United States as a 16-year-old in 2015, and he is confident that his adaptation period to England and the Premier League will be simpler at Chelsea.

"I think coming here will be a smooth transition for me, already knowing the language and things like that," he said.

"It was more difficult when I first went over to Germany, but I learnt so much as a player and as a person and I feel ready for the next big challenges to come now.

"I like to think I'm a really good team player, a guy who gives everything and I look to bring my attacking style to the side. I'll do whatever I can to help the team win games."
