Liverpool tipped to make concerted effort to sign Christian Pulisic



In November, it was reported that the Gabon international "allowed himself numerous lapses of discipline, arrives late for training constantly and considers himself untouchable".

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. Despite Pulisic's production, which earned him US Male Player of the Year honors, the US failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

Pulisic - who was a boyhood United fan - has seven goals and one assist in all competitions this season, and his budding potential could see his value skyrocket as the American is considered one of the most promising teenagers in world football. He said, "I am playing every week in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League, against top teams".

Pulisic is under contract with Dortmund until 2020, but Sports Illustrated journalist Grant Wahl believes the American will leave the club in the summer.

"German sources are adamant the 19-year-old is not going to be available in the current transfer window but might be available in the summer - at a huge cost". "They weren't really soccer players, so we would play basketball all the time".

The 19-year-old winger has shown tremendous class since breaking into the Dortmund's first-team last year.

According to Bild, the pair attempted to resolve the matter, sitting down together at Marbella Airport to clear the air before flying back to Germany on Tuesday. Rashford has become a regular starter, and Jesse Lingard has been one of the club's standout performers this term. I prefer to stick to the facts. "I think about them, and I think what I want to do, how I can play my best game". The emotion of playing Liverpool is often too much for young players to handle effectively.

However, the Independent claim Jose Mourinho has ideas of his own and the Red Devils will match any offer Liverpool make.

His unique combination of skill and marketability in the world's biggest economy have established him as a key strategic talent for the biggest clubs.
