Pulisic wants to emulate Hazard's success at Chelsea

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (MAY 22, 2019) (BBC - NO USE UK) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA'S NEW FORWARD, CHRISTIAN PULISIC, SAYING: "Absolutely, I mean, he's (Eden Hazard) a great guy to look up to and any young player would want to be like that.

He's accomplished so much.

And yeah, we watch him every week and I see him and it's incredible to see what he can do.

So, its definitely a guy to look up to.

It's, you know, what I'd love to become and it's definitely a goal of mine." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA'S NEW FORWARD, CHRISTIAN PULISIC, SAYING: "That's just not something that seems to affect me very much (amount of money from contract).

That doesn't add any pressure to me.

Obviously, nowadays on the market, what anyone is worth, obviously the numbers are very big.

But for me, it's just going in and wanting to prove, you know, prove to myself that I can do it and I can make it.

That's the most important thing to me.

I don't have to look around and at what other people think, I want to make myself proud and my family proud." STORY: Chelsea's new forward Christian Pulisic believes he can reach the same level as Stamford Bridge talisman Eden Hazard and is hoping to team up with the Belgium playmaker next season.

The 20-year-old U.S. international Pulisic joined Chelsea from Borussia Dortmund in January for a reported fee of 58 million pounds ($73.40 million dollars) but was immediately loaned back to the German club for the rest of the season.

With Hazard, 28, linked by British and Spanish media with a move to Real Madrid in the close season, Pulisic could be asked to fill the void and feels he is ready for the challenge.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, league Cup and Europa League crown in seven years at the club.

Asked if would like to have the kind of impact Hazard has had with Chelsea, Pulisic told the BBC, "Absolutely, I mean, he's a great guy to look up to and any young player would want to be like that." "He's definitely a guy to look up to.

It's, you know, what I'd love to become and it's definitely a goal of mine." Pulisic is the most expensive American soccer player of all time, but he said he does not let the price tag add any additional pressure to him.

"That doesn't add any pressure to me... I don't have to look around and at what other people think, I want to make myself proud and my family proud," he said.

The young American could be Chelsea's only new signing ahead of the 2019-20 campaign as they face a two-window transfer ban.

He has mostly played on the right wing for Dortmund this season but could be asked to move to the left flank or take up the number 10 role depending on Hazard's future at the club.
