Chelsea completed a £58m move for Pulisic in January, but allowed him to stay with the German club.

But with the Londoners currently under a transfer embargo, Pulisic is certain to be pushing for a first-team spot for the new season.

And speaking to the Evening Standard, the Pennsylvania-born ace has revealed he sought out Aubameyang for some advice.

The two were team-mates at Dortmund before the Gabon striker joined the Gunners for £60m in January 2018.

He said: “When the possibility of my transfer to Chelsea came around, I reached out to him.

“Even though Pierre-Emerick left Dortmund for Arsenal, we remained in contact.

“I have spoken with him on and off ever since he moved here.

“I asked him how it was in London and stuff. He loves it here.

“He is a big city kind of guy, you can see that and he has told me about a few places to go see.”

Pulisic looked set to sign for rivals Liverpool, but the German club did not accept Jurgen Klopp’s £45m offer.

It is also understood that Arsenal made an approach for the winger, but the club’s proposal of £35m was not enough.

Pulisic featured 30 times for Dortmund last season scoring seven goals and bagging four assists.
