“I’m telling him” – Former player advising Chelsea man to join Newcastle

Chelsea have a chunk of current players who are looking to move on from the club this summer and select new clubs to join.

Chelsea are having a big squad clear out and there are many players with question marks over their heads.

Sources: Chelsea player yet to be told by club or Pochettino what his future is!

USA international Christian Pulisic has been labelled as one player who will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, but he just needs to now find a suitable new suitor.

He’s been linked with Italian clubs and also with Newcastle of late, although the latter has been played down a bit.

That has not stopped former Newcastle player Shaka Hislop in saying that he will be advising Pulisic to join his former club this summer.

The former Tyneside goalkeeper believes that Pulisic would get the management he needs to be successful at Newcastle.

In words picked up by Newcastle World, Hislop said: “I think he’d get the management he needs at Newcastle United. Listen, if Newcastle come in for Christian Pulisic, if I have anything to do with advising him, I’m telling him take it.

“Let’s remember Christian Pulisic has struggled to establish himself in a team that just finished 12th in the league. And given his stop-start and inconsistencies in English football – even dating back to his latter Dortmund days – right now, to get a team finishing in the top-four, top-half of the Premier League, I can’t think of any other.

“The reason I say he’ll get the management he needs is because I look at what Eddie Howe has done with Almiron. If you look at the wide players at Newcastle, we’re talking Willock or Murphy, Eddie Howe likes utilising that pace. I would have him. I think he fits how Eddie Howe likes to play. He does not bring the kind of ego and will allow himself to be coached, to learn under Eddie Howe. And just as Almiron did, I think he has a significant role to play.”

The issue here might be of course though, is whether Pulisic will even be getting the call from Newcastle now with their interest seemingly slowing up.
