The Lowdown: Could be tempted
It was reported earlier this month that the American could be tempted by a move to St James’ Park in January, should the Magpies make the right offer for him.
The Chelsea winger has been limited to just 10 appearances so far this season and has not completed a full 90 minutes in the Premier League yet (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Campbell backs Pulisic move
The ex-Arsenal striker said: “I like Pulisic. He is a very good player.
“It has not worked out for him at Chelsea. He normally just comes off the bench. As an international, he wants to start games. He will feel he deserves to start games.
“I think he would benefit from a move to a club where he can play week in, week out. He needs to build himself back up.
“Could Newcastle offer him that? I think they could. Newcastle need players who can take them to the next level.
“Allan Saint-Maximin is unplayable on his day, but he is not always available. The best ability is availability. Saint-Maximin is just not available enough.”
The Verdict: Needs more consistency
There is no doubt that Pulisic – likened to a ‘dragon‘ by Football Talent Scout’s Jacek Kulig – has quality, as he has managed a total of 66 goals and 58 assists in his senior club and international career combined by the age of just 24.
Pulisic is also earning a hefty £150,000 per week at Stamford Bridge, so it would be risky for Newcastle to pay out that much on an inconsistent performer.
