Liverpool must land Pulisic transfer

Liverpool have already had a rather busy early stage of the current summer transfer window having secured deals for Fabio Carvalho, Darwin Nunez and Calvin Ramsay.

One other figure that has been mentioned with a move to Anfield this summer is Christopher Nkunku.

However, there have been reports suggesting that the RB Leipzig star will be staying at the German club and putting pen to paper on a new deal.

This could therefore pour cold water on any hopes the Reds may have had of getting him to join their ranks this summer.

Should this end up being the case, another figure, much closer to home, that has also been linked with the Merseyside club that could be their own version of Nkunku is Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

According to Football Transfers, the Leipzig star tops the list of players of a similar vein to the American, highlighting the connection between the two figures.

It’s clear to see why with the duo’s attacking talent in terms of scoring and creating goals highlighting the similarities between them.

For example, in 241 senior appearances for Chelsea and his previous club Borussia Dortmund, the American has scored 44 goals and delivered 44 assists.

The Frenchman, meanwhile, has found the net 47 times and provided 46 assists in 134 appearances for Leipzig.

The fact that Sadio Mane is reportedly set to be announced as a Bayern Munich player in the coming days could pave the way for the Reds to launch a move for the Chelsea winger and thus, take him as a suitable replacement for the Senegalese winger.

Labelled as a player who is “hungry to score and to arrive in the box,” according to Thomas Tuchel, Pulisic is currently picking up a weekly wage of £150k-per-week at the west London club.

Another interesting factor regarding the Chelsea winger’s ability on the pitch is the fact that Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo claimed last year that Pulisic is the most difficult opponent he has faced.

Thus, should Jurgen Klopp feel the need to add some more attacking power to his squad, securing a deal for the Chelsea star could be a smart bit of business from the Merseyside club.
