Christian Pulisic Making His Way to Anfield?

After reports have circulated that the American wonderboy, Christian Pulisic, emerged as a likely candidate for Jurgen Klopp to target in the Summer transfer window, The Anfield Talk’s Logan breaks down why the American superstar is a perfect fit for Liverpool.

It’s been almost four months since Liverpool witnessed first hand what the 20-year-old can do. The two goals that were bagged by the American in Charlotte during the preseason doesn’t seem to have any sorts of pull in a transfer of this sort, but in this scenario it does.

Witnessing first hand the size of the crowd that was in attendance just to see Pulisic in action was incredible. He has revolutionized the game in America. Seeing an American that is able to survive in one of the biggest leagues in the world has all of America excited for the future of the game stateside.

With Liverpool’s majority owners located in the states, Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have to be ready to pounce on the opportunity to sign the kid. The impact that Pulisic has had on football in America has been remarkable and FSG have to be willing to spend whatever it takes to land him. He will bring so much attention to the Reds stateside and from FSG’s perspective, he will bring an unimaginable amount of shirt sales, especially since Liverpool is owned by Americans.

On the pitch, Christian will be the desperate replacement in the attacking midfield role. Along with playing the number 10 role, Pulisic is able to play out on the wings and even as a striker if needed. His versatility with being able to play in almost every attacking position gives Klopp a great situation when it comes to rotation, but if Pulisic makes his way to Liverpool he must be in the starting XI every week.

Pulisic’s ability to create chances out of nothing has made him the rising star that he has become today. Along with his ability to create chances, his quickness has allowed him to be able to escape trouble very quickly and lets him have the options going forward. Although his finishing gets overshadowed by his quickness and his ability to create chances, Pulisic puts away his chances when they come calling.

Just this season alone, he has tallied three goals and four assists in just 12 appearances in all competitions. Pulisic is able to rise to the occasion during the big games as seen during Bundesliga games this season. Christian Pulisic is that missing piece to the Liverpool puzzle that could be the difference in a Champions League or Premier League title.

Bayern Munich and Chelsea are tipped to be the favourites to win the signature of the American man according to FOX Soccer but don’t count out Liverpool as the Reds are known to slide in and win the signature at the last minute.
