Liverpool have officially made a £11 million bid Borussia Dortmund’s teenager, Christian Pulisic.
He’s one of the most highly-rated young players in Europe at moment and is someone who Klopp worked with extensively at Dortmund, so it’s no surprise that Reds around the world have been reacting with delight.
Of course, there are question marks around where he’d play and how much of a role he’d play this season if he were to join, but the reception to the news has been positive.
However — lots of people have curbed their enthusiasm with ponderings about a left-back. “Why are we buying a squad player in attack when the defence is such a concern?” they ask…
Good questions indeed…
Normally I would be very happy with Pulisic but since our defense and midfield needs the money so much I just can’t be *that* happy.

£11m for Pulisic? Massively rated American youngster. Decent. But isn’t a left back or DM :(

How are people disappointed at us going after Pulisic? He is one of the best young talents in Europe!

It would be great to get Pulisic, at least we know now for sure Klopp isn’t finished in the transfer market. Good news.

@remainsLFC I think we need another winger to supplement Mane but still don’t see Pulisic playing for awhile… DM is a need for sure

This Pulisic news is good news, because it all but confirms Klopp is still in the market. ?

So we’ve bid £11m for Christian Pulisic, a 17 year old winger. Pretty sure we are screaming out for a DM and LB instead of another attacker
