It's fair to say that Christian Pulisic probably hasn't matched the lofty expectations that surrounded his move to Chelsea.
Rated as one of the top young players in Europe during his time at Borussia Dortmund, he hasn't exactly set the Premier League alight since his £58million transfer to London. He remains far from an automatic starter at the club and often finds himself being consigned to long stretches on the bench.
He still has plenty of time to turn things around at 23-year old, but the American has a long way to go to justify the fee that Chelsea forked out for him.
Apparently, the lads on Pawn Stars haven't really noticed that.
The American show follows the wheelings and dealings of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, with sporting memorabilia often coming through its doors.
A recent episode featured a signed Christian Pulisic jersey, and considering he is the biggest names on the USA national team, you won't be surprised to learn that they went way over the top in their descriptions of his talents and career to date.
The shows labels Pulisic as 'the LeBron James of soccer', but that was only the start.
You can watch the clip below, although we will warn you that it is fairly tough to get through.

The seller of the item claims to be a big fan of Pulisic, but he didn't even know what position he played, labelling him as a 'centre midfielder or a centre forward'. He also called him one of the top players in the Premier League, a very generous description.
The autograph authenticator later goes on to say this:
Christian Pulisic is one of the finest soccer, or football, players in the world.
He plays in England for Chelsea. He is only 22-years old, so you can imagine the talent this guy has.
We think of guys like Messi or Ronaldo, and this kid is already being compared to all of them.
We're not sure who is making those comparisons to be honest.
For those interested, the expert valued the jersey and $400 and the pawn shop opted against making an offer for it as it would take up too much space on their displays for that level of profit.
