There’s more suggestion that Liverpool are keen on getting a ‘future transfer’ deal done with Borussia Dortmund for Christian Pulisic.
In 2017, we managed to secure Naby Keita, on the basis that he’d play out the season with Rb Leipzig and join this summer, which is what happened!
Now, Sport360 reckon it’s possible we can do the same with Dortmund’s teenage American.
Next year, Pulisic will have just one year left on his contract, so if he doesn’t renew, BVB will be under pressure to sell.
As a result, it could be smart for them to cash in now, keep the playmaker for one season and plan for the future.
Many Liverpool fans, such as these lot on Anfield Index, think that not buying another attacker is mindless – considering how our potentially incredible season could be derailed by an injury.

Great discussion from @AnfieldIndex on why Klopp has not yet gone big for an attacker, despite missing out on Fekir – Leon Baily's name the HOT TOPIC 🔥

Despite this report, we’d be mighty surprised if Liverpool did clinch such a signing.
It’s obvious Klopp rates Pulisic, whom he worked with during his time in Germany, but all the noises we’re hearing from the club is that there’ll be no more incomings.
Which is a shame, but the current squad is strong and has the ability to do a great job this term.
