Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted his club will look to offload some of there attackers this summer, with the club currently overloaded at the top.
Liverpool are known admirers of Christian Pulisic and have been recently linked to Mario Gotze, too. Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are pipe-dreams, of course, but the fact BVB will be offloading is a promising prospect.
“Especially in the offensive positions, we have too many players. Something can happen there,” Watzke told Ruhr Nachrichten.
Under Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund have rotated very heavily this term, but some have got more of a look in than others.
Aubameyang is the first name on the team-sheet, earning 19 Bundesliga starts, while Ousmane Dembele has the next most of the attackers with 13. Pulisic is on 10, Mario Gotze nine, Andre Schurrle seven, Reus 8 (mainly due to injury), with Mor and Ramos on four apiece.
Apart from the Gabonese, there could be an argument to suggest any of the others could be attainable – and that’s before mentioning January purchase Alexander Isaak – the teenage Swedish prodigy.
Klopp has earmarked Pulisic from Day One, and despite the American signing a contract extension this term, we’re sure we’ll make another bid come the summer.
Which one of these Dortmund attackers would most benefit Liverpool, Reds? And which is most likely to join…?
