Boehly keen to recruit American talent

Chelsea’s new co-owner Todd Boehly wants to bring more American talent to Stamford Bridge.

Reports indicate that the club have recently drawn up plans which would see them heavily scouring in the USA to identify the best nascent talent there and bring them to England to continue their development.

And, whilst may unearth a gem or two, the commercial advantages are obvious, in terms of building the Chelsea brand in the world’s most lucrative market, and which Boehly, of course knows well.

The only current American player at the West London club is Christina Pulisic, although he was struggling for game time under Thomas Tuchel, and was linked with a loan move away in the summer.

The scenario has changed with the arrival of Graham Potter in the dug-out, and the 24 year old could now get more opportunities, with his versatility across the frontline potentially a valuable asset.
