Liverpool currently find themselves in a promising position in the race for the Premier League title, with supporters starting to get excited.
The Reds have come on leaps and bounds since Jurgen Klopp took over at the club, but the current campaign is shaping up to be their best season yet in terms of their Premier League progress.
However, the Merseyside club suffered a huge setback on the transfer front recently, as according to The Daily Mail, Liverpool target Christian Pulisic wants to join Chelsea.
Maurizio Sarri will bolster his squad by signing Christian Pulisic, although a fee still has to be agreed with German giants Borussia Dortmund.
Sadly, the exciting 20-year-old has indicated that he wants to join the Blues in a deal worth around £60 million next summer and it could be confirmed as early as next month.
Indeed, the American could have been the ideal replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield as he possesses the ability to operate in an attacking midfield role, but it looks as if the Reds are set to miss out.
Christian Pulisic has established himself as one of the hottest topics in world football over the past couple of seasons, with a number of goals and assists to his name in the current campaign.
But, with Chelsea reportedly set to secure his services at some point in the future, this comes as a huge blow for Liverpool as the American could have easily filled the void left by Philippe Coutinho, with skill, pace and an eagle eye for goal being three of his main attributes.
