According to a recent report by the Evening Standard, Borussia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic prefers a move to Liverpool as he is eager to be reunited with his former Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp at Anfield. The same report has also revealed that Chelsea have made an official approach to secure the services of the talented Bundesliga prospect, who is currently being valued in the region of £70m despite having just 18 months remaining on his contract with Dortmund.
It was earlier reported by the Telegraph that the Reds manager is keen on adding the United States international to his ranks but Dortmund would only do business if the transfer took place at the end of this current campaign.
Pulisic is currently sidelined due to a muscle problem but has already put in some impressive displays at Westfalenstadion during the course of this season which has not gone unnoticed by other clubs.
The 20-year-old has made 14 appearances for the German outfit this term, scoring 3 goals while creating 4 assists across all competitions. He is also an integral member of the United States national team and has already earned 23 international caps so far. At the tender age of 20, Pulisic has scored 9 goals for his country which shows how good he can be at the highest level.
What Are Pulisic’s Strengths and Weaknesses?
The Dortmund starlet has a promising career ahead of him in European football and could be nurtured into a world-class talent in the coming years. The USA international is one of the best dribblers in German football as he uses his pace and outstanding technical ability to get past his marker in the opposition half. Pulisic also has the ability to unlock a defence with a telling pass which is exactly what Liverpool needs right now.
When the Hershey-born talent is playing with confidence, he has the knack for scoring important goals. However, he needs to work on building up a sturdy frame if he wants to prove himself in the Premier League.
Big Boost For Liverpool?
Pulisic’s desire to be reunited with his former coach will be a massive boost for Liverpool’s chances of landing the player. He will be an ideal fit for Klopp’s style of play at Anfield while he would also add a lot of quality to the Reds frontline.
Klopp should waste no time and go all out to recruit the Dortmund playmaker’s services in the near future as he could turn out to be a shrewd acquisition for the Reds in the long-run.
