Chelsea have been hit with a transfer ban that rules them out for the next two windows.
They are in the process of appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport but as it stands, the Blues are in for a long summer.
But one deal that was done before the ban came into place was for Borussia Dortmund ace Pulisic.
The American was immediately loaned back to the German club until the end of the season and the youngster has already got his eyes set on one position in the starting XI.
Pulisic has hinted that he prefers to play on the left-hand side of the attack, where he plays nationally – the same position Hazard starts in for Chelsea.
But the Belgian looks destined to leave London this summer, with Real Madrid being heavily linked to the 28-year-old.
And Pulisic looks set to step into his shoes – or at least he hopes.
Speaking about his impending new role, Pulisic said: “I think it’s a really good position for me.
“Obviously I don’t mind where I play on the field, I just like to be in a good attacking areas where I can create and help the team score goals because that’s where I feel I’m at my best.
“I like the style that [USA boss Gregg Berhalter] has and I like that position a lot.
“[Berhalter’s] very focused on all the details of the game.
“I’ve been amazed the first few days with just how much information he’s got across, and how he wants every guy to be on the same page and have a perfect understanding of how we want to go into the game.”
Pulisic has had a tough season to date under Lucien Favre, with his first-team spot being lost to England sensation Jadon Sancho.
But the 20-year-old is positive about the future and his chances until the end of the season.
He added: “I feel very confident right now, I’m feeling very good. I feel I’m at the top of my game.
“My teammates are all professionals, They understand how this business works. I wanted to move and they’re all very happy for me and the club is as well.
“But they also understand that I’m there to give 120 per cent the rest of the season because I want to win just as bad as all the guys in the locker room. It’s not weird at all.”
