The issue of rivalry between the two London outfits Arsenal and Chelsea was not allowed to come into place as the Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is reported to have influenced the decision of American star Christian Pulisic to join the Blues team from the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.
Christian Pulisic agreed on a move to join the Blues team in the last January winter transfer window but was loaned back.
He gave this revelation in one of his first interviews after returning back, revealing that he had asked the Gunners’ striker before making one move and got convinced by the response.
It is important to note that Christian Pulisic had worked with the Gunners striker at the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund before they parted ways in 2018 after the Gabon international signed for the North London outfit.
Christian Pulisic admits that they parted ways for some time now but have kept contact with one another as good friends.
However, the two teams are set to clash in the coming week for the Europa League finals in Baku.
A win for Chelsea will not only hand them a trophy but it will help manager Maurizio Sarri keep his job.
