Jurgen Klopp is still hoping to land Borussia Dortmund’s attacking midfielder Christian Pulisic, report the German media.
Liverpool have long been linked with interest in the versatile American, with at least one bid being turned down since 2016.
And now it seems that Klopp may well be looking to go back in for him this summer to finally snare his signature, with Pulisic as yet not having signed a new contract.
Bild report that Klopp is undeterred by two rebuffs in recent transfer windows, and is prepared to offer in excess of €60 million for the 19-year-old.
It would really be no surprise if Klopp maintained a firm desire to bring Pulisic to Anfield, and indeed would add to a pattern of patience and resolve in the transfer market that the boss has shown.
Pulisic, still a teenager, fits even more wisely to the train of thought that some players are worth waiting for, given that in the meantime he has been accruing invaluable experience.
He has become a key performer, not just for BVB but also the United States national side, where he is perhaps the single most important component to build around.
Pulisic has played as a No. 10 in a diamond, on both sides of a 4-3-3 attack and even as a wing-back this term—albeit in the ill-fated spell of Peter Bosz—highlighting both his technical traits and his tactical acumen.
The Reds most assuredly need players who can fit in and around the front three next term, but Pulisic would doubtless also be a consideration as a No. 8.
Liverpool aren’t afraid to spend big when the player is the right fit in Klopp’s eyes, and that’s clearly the case with Pulisic.
For now, Michael Zorc continues to say that he has “no knowledge” of an impending bid from the Reds for BVB’s starlet, but with two years left on his deal, this summer could be the one to finally encourage a move from Dortmund to Liverpool.
