According to German newspaper Bild, Chelsea have taken the first step in completing the acquisition of Christian Pulisic by agreeing terms with the 20-year-old over a summer transfer.

Chelsea wanted to bring Pulisic to the Bridge in the winter transfer window, but Borussia Dortmund were unmoved, and held strong to their position not to let him move out of Signal Iduna Park in the middle of the season.
While the Blues have yet to agree on a fee, personal terms have apparently already been dealt with. Bild suggests that he has been “promised” that he could leave Dortmund on a €50 million fee — €20 million less than the figure prompted five months ago during the summer transfer window.
Given age, his past production and the potential to become a star in the Premier League for years to come, €50 million sounds pretty good. It's happening?
