Maurizio Sarri says he knew nothing about Chelsea's deal to sign Christian Pulisic just a day before the transfer was announced by the club.

Chelsea announced the £57 million signing of Christian Pulisic on Wednesday, though the U.S. worldwide will not arrive from Borussia Dortmund until the summer, whilst the club have also been credited with an interest in AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuaín.

"We have to try to solve the problem of the last 15, 20 metres", the Italian said after his team's 0-0 draw with relegation-threatened Southampton on Wednesday.

Paris Saint-Germain are claimed to be keen on signing the midfielder and some of the top names in the Premier League are also very much interested in getting their hands on him. I think we need something different for characteristics.

Right now, Alvaro Morata is the Blues' only recognized striker with Olivier Giroud sidelined with an ankle injury.
