Liverpool fans are becoming increasingly ambitious in the transfer market, and it’s no surprise, with the club buying four players in 2018 for monstrous cash already.
Virgil van Dijk arrived in January, while Naby Keita, Fabinho and Alisson have supplemented the squad this summer – with Xherdan Shaqiri the only bargain buy through the door.
So when we see a playmaker valued at €70m, it actually makes us think there’s a potential bargain on the table, unbelievably!
This is what’s happened with Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Christian Pulisic, anyway…
Christian Pulisic will not leave Borussia Dortmund this summer unless a bid of over €70m is received, according to kicker. #BVB

Following the report from Kicker that BVB will sell if a prospective buyer coughs up €70m, Liverpool fans hit Twitter with the suggestion that we should purchase the American instead of Nabil Fekir – the Frenchman whose Anfield switch was cancelled after he failed a medical.
Many supporters reckon €70m is an affordable sum, that Pulisic is comparable to Fekir in terms of ability and that it’s an opportunity not to be missed.
Where do you stand, Reds?
@ThePaulMachin @mrbloodred @stehoare @TheRedmenTV if it's true and Dortmund have put 70mil on Pulisic why wouldn't Liverpool go get him straight away instead of the same money for Fekir Pulisic is an absolute steal for 70mil #LFC

Liverpool will sign Pulisic mark my words.

After hearing Klopps comments about Pulisic the other day then Liverpool should be all over this if this is true. His price will double in a year. https://t.co/p4g8fbYFLH

Would love Pulisic at Liverpool, but don’t see it happening to be fair.

Pulisic to Liverpool is gathering pace. #LFC Please let this happen.

€70m for Pulisic is comparable to what we were going to spend on Fekir. Pulisic is much younger and very close to Fekir ability wise. Our owners are American. Huge opportunity for Liverpool on and off the pitch. It’s a no brainier for me. #LFC
