Liverpool and rivals reportedly set to battle for Bundesliga star

Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic talked up

Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic talked up

The biggest obstacle standing in the way of a transfer is the importance Pulisic places on playing time, which he's gradually earned with Dortmund since joining the first team in January 2016.

Beyond the consideration of whether or not he has the technical chops for the higher level his output seems to demand, there is a question revolving around legacy, and where a move to China this early would place him in the pantheon of great African strikers.

With nine goals in 20 caps for the United States as well, Pulisic looks set for stardom, and it has long seemed like a matter of time before Premier League clubs eyed up major bids.

Playing for Dortmund, by contrast, has afforded him a welcome degree of normalcy, he revealed: "I've come into a bigger role with the national team in the U.S., but I think the environment I'm in here definitely helps". Initially slotting into the club's under-17 side, the player made such rapid strides that he broke into the first-team setup only a year later, at the nascent age of 17.

"When you do that every week, you are going to improve". He is also the youngest foreigner to score a goal in the Bundesliga.

"Pulisic is part of that generation". Although the USMNT missed out on the World Cup, it highlights another aspect of signing Pulisic. I try to work on them throughout the week.

Away from the hype that rages back home, he can concentrate on growing, safe in the knowledge that coach Peter Stoger and the club will evaluate his progress on its own terms. "They weren't really soccer players, so we would play basketball all the time".

MANCHESTER UNITED are ready for a tug-of-war with Liverpool over Christian Pulisic.

But having moved to Dortmund aged 16 from his native Pennsylvania, the attacking midfielder also stressed that U.S. should learn from Germany's systematic development of young players.

However, Sports Illustrated journalist Grant Wahl claimed last month he thought Pulisic was primed for a summer move to the Premier League.

When you're 19 years old, you want the world at your feet, not its weight on your shoulders.

"We were missing his position and that's why we called him up", Klopp said in a press conference.
