Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp remained tight-lipped when asked about the possibility of landing Borussia Dortmund's highly rated winger Christian Pulisic before the end of the transfer window. The 17-year-old was signed by the Reds manager in January 2015, when he was in charge at the Signal Iduna Park.
The Merseyside club have already completed five signings this summer. According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool were planning on making a £11m ($14.5m) bid in order to bring the teenager to Anfield.
Pulisic made his way into the first team and he impressed with his display under Thomas Tuchel. However, he has now fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Mario Gotze and Andre Schurrle, which has seen him being linked with a move away from the club.
"No transfer rumours. I have no comment on this. Absolutely nothing to speak about this and all the other cases too," Klopp explained, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
"When we know something and when are close to doing something, then we will inform you – or a little bit later."
Klopp saw his side settle for a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. That makes it one win, one defeat and one draw in the first three Premier League fixtures for Liverpool as the victory came over Arsenal in the opening match of the season.
The Anfield club have bagged four points after three matches. The former Borussia Dortmund manager admitted that he did not expect to have this start to the 2016/17 season.
"It is an early moment in the season and we have not had the easiest start, so for this it's OK. Sitting here with four points after three games is not what I wanted but this is our base and we will build on this base," Liverpool manager added.
