Liverpool registered another important victory yesterday by beating West Brom away from home. They are now getting closer and closer to earning Champions League qualification again.
The Reds will need more quality and depth in their squad to challenge world class teams in Europe’s elite competition and they are once again linked with American international and Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic.
The Merseysiders tried to sign him last summer and were also linked with a move to secure his signature in the winter transfer window (via Daily Mail) but the 18-year-old playmaker eventually stayed with the Bundesliga side.
Now, according to British source Mirror, Liverpool will battle the likes of Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur to finally sign the teenage attacker and Klopp is keen on securing his signature.
The pacy star can play in any attacking position but mainly, he is a right winger. This season, he has featured in 36 games (all competitions) for BvB and directly contributed in 15 goals (5 goals and 10 assists).
Pulisic’s current contract with the German side will expire in 2020 and as per the provided Mirror link, he will cost over 30 million pounds.
Christian has only started 20 games this season and more often than not, he finds himself on the bench because Dortmund have an overcrowded attacking midfield. The scenario won’t really change for him if he opts to join Bayern Munich. A move to either Liveprool or Spurs may prove fruitful for the young US attacker’s career.
