Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are set to join Liverpool in their race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic in the January transfer window. The winger has long been a target for Jurgen Klopp, who was at Signal Iduna Park when the player arrived in Germany.

The US international joined the Bundesliga club from PA Classics in February 2015, when the current Reds manager was in charge at Dortmund. He left his position as their manager at the end of the 2014/15 season, before taking charge at Anfield in October the same year.

According to the Italian publication Calciomercato, the Merseyside club are not the only side interested in securing the teenager's services. Their league rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are also looking at the option of signing Pulisic at the turn of the new year.

Pulisic has two goals and four assists in 10 league appearances this season. Klopp was keen on bringing him to Liverpool last summer, but saw his side's approach turned down by his former employer.

Liverpool are still interested in signing him and will plan for an approach when the transfer window opens in January. They will not be the only side from England's top flight club competition as the north London rivals are looking to add Pulisic to their squad in the mid-season transfer window.

The player has already expressed his love for the Premier League, while also admitting he supports Liverpool's arch-rivals Manchester United. His deal at Dortmund will run down in 2019 and the club's sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted they want to tie him down to a new deal.

"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, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

"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."
