Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic is being tempted by the prospect of a transfer to Newcastle United.
The Magpies have been one of several clubs linked with the US international in recent times, along with AC Milan and even Manchester United towards the end of the summer.
The latest from journalist Ben Jacobs is that Pulisic could make a decision closer to the World Cup, with Newcastle tipped as being in the picture.
“I think if Newcastle made the right offer it could be very tempting for Pulisic. But he is one of the players that the World Cup will really influence now because he is stuck at Chelsea until the World Cup,” Jacobs told Give Me Sport.

“If then he doesn’t have the best World Cup, he could feel rejected even more at Chelsea and then think, ‘okay, I better go’. But if he has a big World Cup then I think Chelsea would not want to get rid of him in January and will be more optimistic about the situation.
“He is playing with a new manager in Graham Potter who can push him as well. So that whole locker room culture, from Pulisic’s point of view, has changed.”
