The 17-year-old American midfielder has already made his international debut and is also reportedly on Real Madrid's radar.

Liverpool may face competition from Manchester City in their pursuit of highly-rated Borussia Dortmund midfielder Christian Pulisic, according to the Daily Mail.

Pulisic, 17, became the youngest player in Bundesliga history to record two league goals last Saturday when he scored for the second straight game in Dortmund’s 3-0 win at Stuttgart.

The American playmaker, who officially joined the German giants in February 2015 after acquiring a Croatian passport, has made 11 total appearance for Thomas Tuchel’s side since breaking into the first-team over the winter and is considered to be one of the hottest prospects in European club football.

He has already earned his senior US international debut in last month’s 4-0 World Cup qualifying win over Guatemala, coming on for the final nine minutes of the match, and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann revealed last week that he is now in contention to make the squad for the Copa America Centernario this summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is believed to be a big admirer of the teenage wonderkid after seeing his talent up close during their time together at Dortmund and recent reports have even claimed that he has instructed his scouts to keep close tabs on him going forward [h/t Daily Mail].

The Reds may ultimately wait until 2017 before following up their interest in the Pennsylvania native with a concrete bid, but according to the Daily Mail, there could be some considerable competition for his signature at that stage.

New York City FC sporting director Claudio Reyna has reportedly alerted sister club Manchester City to his compatriot's promising performances, while Real Madrid are also said to have started monitoring his progress over recent weeks.

Dortmund would obviously be reluctant to sell their star prospect given how highly they rate him, but another season of growth could prompt a bid which proves just too good to turn down.
