Pulisic ready to replace Hazard after announcement? As agent sends Chelsea clear Jorginho message

The agent of Jorginho has told Chelsea fans that the midfielder wants to be a key figure in helping the Blues end the season on a high.

After months of speculation and weeks of talks, we finally announced the signing of Jorginho from Napoli towards the back-end of the transfer window and he walked straight into Maurizio Sarri’s starting line-up, having worked with the Italian with the Serie A giants.

However, it has not been the best first season for the midfielder and he has been heavily criticised for many of his performances, but his agent believes it is only a matter of time before his client and his under-fire manager turn the corner.

‘The first year in the Premier League is always difficult, we hope the next season can be better,’ Joao Santos told CalcioNapoli24.

‘We need to raise the level of the game and also Jorginho wants to do it, we just have to wait for the right tactical and technical solution.

‘When you’re dealing with a new style of play, you need time to do things the best way possible. We only have to wait for the future, because English football is certainly very beautiful.’

Meanwhile, Christian Pulisic has hinted that he is ready to replace Eden Hazard on the left wing after signing for the club.

The young American is one of the most talented and creative wingers in world football after developing very nicely at Borussia Dortmund, but after the emergence of Jadon Sancho, the Germans came to the conclusion that they would cash in on Pulisic.

And he has dropped a massive hint that he is keen to replace Hazard on the left-wing, with the Belgian heavily tipped to pack his bags and make the big money move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Pulisic said on the BILD website: ‘I think it’s a really good position for me. Obviously I don’t mind where I play on the field, I just like to be in a good attacking areas where I can create and help the team score goals because that’s where I feel I’m at my best.

‘I like the style that [Berhalter] has and I like that position a lot

‘[Berhalter’s] very focused on all the details of the game. I’ve been amazed the first few days with just how much information he’s got across, and how he wants every guy to be on the same page and have a perfect understanding of how we want to go into the game.’
