Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic could be open to a move to Liverpool after he spoke about his affection for English football.
The Bundesliga giants were reported to have turned down an £11million offer from the Reds in the summer, but are tipped to reignite their interest in January.
The 18-year-old spent 12 months playing for Brackley Town during his youth career and he believes that the time spent there has helped mould him as a player.
“It’s a big reason [for] where I am today,” he told Mail Online.
“A lot of people don’t realise but it really brought on my passion for the game. After school every day, I was just out for hours in the park, playing with my schoolmates.
“That’s really where my love for the game started to come alive and that was a big part of my development.”
“There were so many players that just showed so much skill and confidence in their games. I just loved the English style,”
“I thought [before] it was just for fun.
“I just started to love it so much and I said: ‘Wow. I’m pretty good! I think I can do something with this game.’”
