David Luiz excited to link-up with new teammate

Chelsea defender David Luiz is eagerly waiting for Christian Pulisic to finally join the team, after signing in January from Borussia Dortmund.

Luiz believes the attacker has all the right qualities to succeed at the club and is looking forward to linking up with him. 

"Christian is going to bring us a lot of talent,’ said David Luiz of the 20-year-old’s imminent arrival.

‘We are waiting for him to help him to try to develop fast and to help us. He is a great player and I think he is going to have a great future for us," he added. 

Luiz was speaking after Chelsea's friendly match against New England Stars in the United States where they wong won 3-0. 

Pulisic is set to join the club at the end of the current campaign, having signed the contract in January. 

With the looming UEFA ban on the club, Pulisic might be the only new addition to the side, at least until 2021. 

His arrival can be a timely boost to the Blues, who have become resigned to losing mercurial attacker Eden Hazard, who is rumoured to have already agreed to move to Real Madrid. 

Chelsea will play their final match against Arsenal in the Europa League final on May 29th in Baku, Azerbaijan.
