Liverpool: Christian Falk backs Reds’ interest in Christian Pulisic -Liverpool News

Reputable journalist Christian Falk has backed reports of Liverpool‘s interest in Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic this summer. 

The lowdown: Klopp connection

Despite never playing under Jurgen Klopp, Pulisic has often been indexed to the German, having come through the ranks and being given a first senior training session by the 54-year-old before representing Borussia Dortmund on 127 occasions.

Klopp hailed the USA captain as a ‘fantastic skilled boy’ in 2018, whilst the 23-year-old reciprocated the praise in describing the Reds manager as a ‘great guy’ when asked for his opinion on potentially playing under him in the future.

Having initially been linked with a move to Anfield prior to spending three years at Chelsea which have been truncated by injuries, Liverpool could be about to reignite their interest in the American…

Despite Pulisic’s talents, any move for the versatile forward would need to firstly see fitness concerns were allayed, as the American has missed an eye-opening 44 matches over his three seasons in London.

Recently praised by journalist Kyle Bonagura for a ‘world class’ goal for the USA against Morocco, the 49-cap ace scored eight times and provided five assists in 38 appearances across all competitions this season.

Should Liverpool sign Christian Pulisic?

Equally adept on either wing or as an attacking midfielder, Pulisic – who holds a perceived market value of £40.5m from Transfermarkt – would offer a supreme versatility to the Anfield squad that would be a welcome addition to Klopp’s ranks.

Although the American has only made 10 career outings as a striker, the role in which Sadio Mane ended the 2021/22 campaign, his age and his ability to adapt to new roles could lend themselves to another noteworthy transformation under Klopp if the 23-year-old swaps west London for Merseyside.
