Eighteen-year-old Borussia Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic is one of the best young players on the continent and expected to fetch at least £25M for his current club should he decide to push for an exit. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is the man who, in his Dortmund days, first brought Pulisic into the fold.
It’s no wonder, then, that rumours have linked the two with an Anfield reunion almost from the moment Klopp took over. Of course, the fact that Dortmund are a big club and have no interest in selling the promising young player is something of a stumbling block. So too is an ever-growing list of suitors.
Today, assorted English outlets citing Italian publications—themselves interested in Pulisic due to a smattering of links to Serie A sides—are suggesting two names battling Liverpool at the top of the table will now join them in fighting it out for Pulisic: London giants Arsenal and eternal transfer rivals Tottenham.
Just last week, it was Paris Saint-Germain being added to the list, and it has become a touch difficult to keep track of which sides exactly are meant to be sniffing around Pulisic. Who, again for the record, Dortmund have so far steadfastly said they have no intention of selling either in January or the summer.
Pulisic has made 15 appearances for Dortmund this season, scoring two goals and six assists in all competitions, good for a goal involvement every 111 minutes he’s been on the pitch. He has also quickly seen his role with the United States grow, and there is an argument he is already their most talented player.
