Pulisic became the most expensive American when he joined Chelsea from the Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund last year for an estimated £58 million transfer fee.

The 21-year-old previously struggled to impress in his first months in West London but improved his form to become Chelsea’s main man as the season progressed.

He scored eleven goals and provided ten assists in a season that was fairly marred by chronic injuries.

Pulisic’s potential was fully exploited when their season resumed after a three-month hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The American scored four and provided four assists to help Chelsea secure a top four finish.

Nevin believes Pulisic has shown glimpses of being Chelsea’s superstar and has tipped him to be the most important player for the Blues in the coming years.

“There were moments when Christian Pulisic looked like he might run away with the Player of the Year trophy,” the Scottish told Chelsea’s official website.

“At times he was looking like our most potent scorer as well as creator.

“Chelsea fans will soon tire of comparing him with Eden Hazard, which is unfair on him, but they also know that for raw talent, match the intelligence and searing pace as well as an eye for goal.

“At 21 years old he could be one of the most important players for this club over the next five to 10 years.” He concluded.
