Liverpool are ready to make a bid for Borussia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic this summer. The American has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in recent years as his price continues to rise in Germany. Pulisic is a crucial part of Dortmund’s first team at present.

And his excellent performances have seen Manchester United and Arsenal tentatively linked with a summer transfer. But Liverpool have always considered favourites to land the youngster. The Reds are planning to make a £53m offer for the left midfielder this transfer window. Jurgen Klopp is keen to add Pulisic to his side as he attempts to build a team available of winning the Premier League next season.

The German tried to move Pulisic to Anfield in 2016 but saw a £11m bid rejected and Reds’ scouts have since continued to tracking his progress since. Pulisic has become Dortmund’s most valuable footballer since two leaders like Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the club last year.

Dortmund are desperate to offer Pulisic a new contract but a deal that was discussed back in February stays unsigned. Pulisic scored nine goals in 20 games, and has already been described as football’s “first American superstar”.
