Borussia Dortmund are ready to listen to offers for Christian Pulisic after deciding the time is right to cash in on his precocious talent, claims the Daily Mail.

The news put Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea on red alert, with the report declaring it will cost £65m to land the winger.

Liverpool are well aware of the USA international’s abilities after he netted twice in BVB’s 3 – 1 win over the Reds during this summer’s International Champions Cup match at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.

At 19, Pulisic already has 21 caps and 9 goals for the USMNT to his name and has long been touted with a move to the Premier League. Now, it seems that speculation may come true.

However, there is interest from other members of Europe’s elite clubs. Real Madrid, desperate to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after his defection to Juventus, as well as the Bianconeri are rumoured to be eyeing the Dortmund winger.

Yet, the strongest interest is from England. With the transfer window closing on 9th August, any move will happen quickly.

Liverpool returned to Merseyside immediately after last night’s 4 – 1 thrashing of Manchester United and are understood to be considering a move this week for Pulisic.

The American is also the topic of a conversation between Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and his advisors in Antibes where his yacht has docked.

With the Premier League season a fortnight away, bringing Pulisic aboard now is vital if he is to be ready for the new campaign.
