Christian Pulisic, who is reported to be a target for Liverpool, has insisted that he is happy at Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool have been furiously linked with Borussia Dortmund’s young starlet Christian Pulisic in recent months. After it was reported that the Reds had a €12m bid rejected for the American in the summer transfer window, it was widely pointed out that Jurgen Klopp was still keen to add Pulisic to his squad, come January.
Pulisic, however, who has managed to carve out a place for himself in Thomas Tuchel’s plans despite his tender years, has spoken out on the rumours linking him with a move away from Dortmund. The 18-year-old is adamant that he is happy at Westfalenstadion and is keen to continue his development with the club.
Addressing questions directed at him during a live Facebook chat on U.S. Soccer’s Facebook page, Pulisic said: “I think with soccer, you never really know what’s going to happen in your career — that’s the beauty of it. But right now, I’m with Dortmund and very happy. I’m earning my spot and working hard for that team.”
Pulisic, who broke in Dortmund’s first team in the second half of last campaign, has enjoyed a breakthrough season with Die Schwarzgelben, with the winger scoring twice in 18 appearances for the club so far in the 2016/17 season.
Quite naturally, his rise at Dortmund has attracted attention from various clubs with Liverpool in particular looking to add the America international to their ranks as they search for attacking options, with Danny Ings injured and Sadio Mane set to depart for a month for the Africa Cup of Nations.
However, their pursuits for the American youngster were thwarted recently by Dortmund’s Sporting Director Michael Zorc, who had proclaimed that the Anfield-based club had no chance of signing Pulisic and said: “Liverpool can save themselves the effort of trying to sign Pulisic.”
For now, it seems like Dortmund and Zorc will be able to keep hold of their man, with Pulisic insisting that he’s happy in Germany.
