Liverpool line-up £27m bid for 'New Cristiano Ronaldo': Jurgen Klopp sets sights on astonishing young talent
Liverpool are ready to make a big-money move for one of the most exciting prospects in world football according to the Daily Mail.
Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp is set to make a fresh bid for Borussia Dortmund teenager Christian Pulisic following an unsuccessful £14m offer for the teenager over the summer.
The 18-year-old United States international has burst onto the scene over the past year and has forced his way into the Westfalenstadion first-team set-up way earlier than many would have expected.
Pulisic has been dubbed the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ and could be the subject of a fresh £27m offer that could alert the youngster, who may feel a move to a resurgent Liverpool might best serve his career.
Klopp isn’t above raiding his former club and clearly knows the player well from his time in charge of the Bundesliga giants.
Pulisic has started six of Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga fixtures this season and his tally of four assists is bettered only by Franck Ribery and Andrej Kramaric.
The Pennsylvania born starlet has already netted three times of the full national team set-up and is perhaps the most exciting talent the United States has produced in decades.
Klopp has sparked new life into Liverpool Football Club and his attacking ethos is winning over many new fans and Pulisic’s direct running style certainly fits the bill and this source claims that the impending African Nations Cup call-up for Sadio Mane may speed up the pursuit of the attacking midfielder, who is also very adept in a wide role.
Liverpool sit top of the Premier League with the Merseyside outfit’s front-line scaring the life out of defences up and down the land. The manner in which they are laying the opposition to waste has led many fans of the club to believe their lengthy wait for a domestic title could be soon to an end.
