Happy New Year, Chelsea fans.
Because this news will really set pulses racing.
According to substantiated reports in Germany, the Blues have agreed a deal to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund.
The deal will cost a reported £63m but will see the golden boy of American football loaned back to the Bundesliga leaders for the remainder of the season.
Jurgen Klopp was reportedly interested in a reunion with his former player at Liverpool but it is Chelsea who have won the race.
Pulisic is widely regarded as one of the hottest emerging stars on the planet and has already been labelled the best player in US soccer history.
The 20-year-old has been a Dortmund regular for three seasons now, although has been overshadowed by the rapid rise of Jadon Sancho this term.
Given his seismic marketing value, you have to feel this is a stellar signing by the west Londoners.
