It’s been a stunning summer so far for Liverpool, with major deals like that which brought Alisson and Fabinho to Anfield becoming normal at Anfield these days. Given the years of minimal spending and mediocrity that led to Jurgen Klopp’s regime, there’s no doubting that Liverpool are on an upwards trajectory.
But is there a chance that their summer could get even better?
Well, unfortunately, in the case of Christian Pulisic, that doesn’t look likely. According to the Mirror, though the Reds are long-time admirers of him and would like to have him at Anfield, they’ve suffered a blow in the form of interest from Chelsea. The Blues are said to be eager to improve their squad, and they view the £65 million-rated attacker as an ideal choice.
He’s apparently available for £65 million, and Chelsea, it appears, could be willing to make that splash. Liverpool aren’t used to not getting who they want at the moment, given how successful they’ve been in recent years and months on the transfer front, but they may fall short here, it seems.
However, Liverpool fans are online are eager for Jurgen Klopp to ensure that’s not the case. Indeed, they’ve been on Twitter over the last day or so calling for the Reds to sign the American attacker – with the 19-year-old a very popular man at Anfield.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
It seems like Kovacic and Pulisic (both will compete for Ballon d'Or within a few years) are both available in this transfer window. @LFC should try to sign at least one of them before it's too late!!#YNWA #LFC @AnfieldHQ @thisisanfield @LivEchonews @JamesPearceEcho

1 week and 3 days until the window closes, hoping that's enough time to sort the sales and 1 or 2 incomings. (Pulisic and a CB)#LFC

So we are even letting Woodburn go. Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson are out on loan as well. Hopefully we do sign Fekir or Pulisic or any other attacking midfielder.
Can't rely on Lallana, Origi, Solanke or Ings as subs. #LFC

I don't understand why we haven't snapped Pulisic up yet #LFC

Fekir or Pulisic give us one! One more attacking player away from the perfect window #LFC

#LFC owners American, Pulisic American. Klopp absolutely love him, repeatedly said he’d sign if he’s available. He’s only 19 and guaranteed to be a world class players in a season or two. I’d say splash the cash on him.

Would love us to sign Pulisic but will wait till a reliable Journo reports it before getting too excited #LFC

As someone who lives in US , I would love to see @cpulisic_10 succeed at #LFC. Love the guy and he has superb potential, Klopp is the man who can help him get there. Playing along side Salah, Mane and Firmino would help him a lot

Shaqiri, Mane, Pulisic, Salah, Sturridge, Firmino would better than the Avengers. #LFC
