Christian Pulisic: Wanted at Anfield

Borussia Dortmund director Michael Zorc has revealed the club are prepared to off Christian Pulisic to stop the advances of Liverpool.

The Reds are reportedly ready to step up their interest in the 18-year-old sensation in January, but the Bundesliga club are hoping to stop them in their tracks by handing him a brand-new contract.

“There have been some offers for him in the summer window from England and from German clubs, but we would like to have him here and develop him here,” Zorc told Sports Illustrated.

“We did not educate him to sell him. We have a long-running contract until 2019, but because of his development the club is ready to speak to him to prolong his contract at any time.”

Pulisic was believed to have been considering his future at Dortmund over the summer after the Bundesliga outfit signed Ousmane Dembele and Emre Mor, potentially limiting his first-team involvement.

However, the USA international has made 12 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice and creating a further five goals.
