Jurgen Klopp is set to continue his transfer spree well into the final days of the transfer window as Liverpool launched a bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic. The Reds have made six signings thus far this summer as the manager looks to bring Liverpool back to the Champions League.
The German manager admitted there could be further additions following Liverpool's loss to Burnley last weekend, but made it clear he will not make panic buys owing to one bad result. Pulisic was signed by Klopp during his reign at Dortmund and was promoted to train with the first-team. The 17-year-old made his senior team debut last season and became the youngest foreign player to score in the Bundesliga, when he netted against Hamburg.
According to the Daily Mail, the Merseyside club have launched a £11m ($14.4m) bid for the United States international and are hoping to beat Stoke City, who are also said to have made an enquiry regarding the availability of the midfielder. Klopp is a big admirer and is hoping his former club accept the fee as he looks to complete the transfer before deadline day on Wednesday (31 August).
Pulisic, who is contracted to the Bundesliga club until the summer of 2018, made 12 first-team appearances last season in all competitions, but has fallen out of contention this campaign following the arrival of Mario Gotze and Andre Schurrle. This has prompted interest from clubs across Europe including the Reds, who will be hopeful of beating the competition.
According to Mirror, the German club are set to resist offers from interested clubs for the United States international, who played in their successful run to the semi-finals of the Copa America this summer. They are keen to hold on to the highly-rated attacking midfielder, but a lack of first-team football could tempt him to reunite with his former manager at Anfield.
