US international Christian Pulisic, who joined Chelsea in a club-record transfer deal, has been raising expectations at Stamford Bridge, where coach Frank Lampard believes he has a lot of potential, particularly after the high quality he displayed at the Gold Cup.

Pulisic was the one to follow during the summer tournament with the USMNT, where he led the America team onto the final against Mexico, which they lost due to a Jona Dos Santos goal.

Pulisic's improvement and high performances with the US national team have ensured that he remains amongst top 10 of the Most Valuable Players Under 21, a list published by soccerex. Although he dropped one spot from last year's ranking.

The 20-year-old winger is worth $64.3 million, which is less than the $73 million Chelsea spent in last winter's transfer window to sign him from Borussia Dortmund.
