Liverpool dealt blow in pursuit of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Christian Pulisic

first_img Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED 3 Pulisic in action against the Reds in pre-season, where he scored two goals in a 3-1 win for Dortmund Dortmund are under no pressure to lose Pulisic in a Naby Keita-style deal targets But, according to Sky Sports, Borussia Dortmund will be under no pressure to agree to such a deal for their 19-year-old ace.Making his Dortmund debut at the age of just 16, Pulisic has made 97 appearances in two-and-a-half seasons in their first-team, scoring 12 goals.But he has just two years remaining on his contract at the Westfalenstadion, and it has been suggested that could see Dortmund cashing in over the next 12 months, instead of risking losing him for nothing.But, Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge believes Liverpool will not be the only candidate should Dortmund choose to sell, as Pulisic will have plenty of suitors from across Europe.Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, he explained: “Keita had the £48million release clause which kicked in this summer and Liverpool paid a premium on that to secure him.“Leipzig were destined to lose him anyway, but Dortmund aren’t in that position with Pulisic. Liverpool will NOT be able to sign Borussia Dortmund’s American wonderkid Christian Pulisic in a Naby Keita-style deal, according to reports. 3 Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Christian Pulisic has been linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the 19-year-old star and has made no secret of his interest in the past, while Chelsea and Real Madrid have also been linked.Liverpool have been actively tracking the youngster’s progress in Germany and even made an £11million offer back in 2016, which was rejected by the Bundesliga club.Pulisic’s value has increased dramatically since, with the USA international now said to be rated at €65million by Dortmund.Liverpool had been linked with making a summer bid for the starlet – who scored two goals against the Reds in a pre-season friendly – while there have been suggestions they could look to secure his signature in a similar deal which saw Keita move to Anfield this summer after agreeing to move from RB Leipzig last year.

You’d imagine him having interest from all the top European clubs.“But, Jurgen Klopp absolutely gets a player when he likes them.”The Reds have already spent around £175m this summer on big-name signings including Alisson, Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.However, their spending has been offset by the sale of Philippe Coutinho in January and their profitable run to last season’s Champions League final.And with that money, plus this season’s transfer budget, still in the bank, it is difficult to rule out another approach from the Reds for Pulisic.
