Christian Pulisic celebrates with team mates after scoring for Dortmund
Last week, the Daily Mail reported that new Tottenham scout Steve Hitchen travelled to Germany, in order to watch Borussia Dortmund starlet Christian Pulisic in action against Monaco.
Pulisic, 18, has emerged as one of the top young prospects in European football during his time with Borussia Dortmund, having arrived from PA Classics in 2015.
The winger hit two goals in 12 appearances last season, and Pulisic has now notched five goals in eight assists in competitive action for Dortmund this season, and appears set for stardom.
Unsurprisingly though, Pulisic's exploits are triggering interest, with the Daily Mail claiming that Spurs are tracking his progress ahead of the summer transfer window – and The Mirror reported over the weekend that Dortmund would want at least £30million for his signature.
The news of Tottenham's interest is particularly interesting given that, just last month, Pulisic told FourFourTwo that he actually trained with Spurs before joining Dortmund, and he's now force Daniel Levy to dig deep to sign him.
Tottenham have attempted to go for the budget route out wide, but Clinton N'Jie and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou have yet to impress, whilst the big outlay on Moussa Sissoko could make Levy reluctant to spend big again on another winger.

Yet, where Sissoko was inconsistent at the best of times with Newcastle, Pulisic has shown that he can already contribute in the Bundesliga and in Europe, whilst he also has the potential to become a star of the future with the right coaching and development.
Not only does Pulisic possess pace and dribbling ability, but he has also gained experience at playing in a high-pressing style at Dortmund, which would stand him in good stead to develop in Maurcio Pochettino's Tottenham side.
£30million is a steep price for a teenager, especially one that was previously training with the club, but rather than go for a budget route or gamble on another wide player like Sissoko, Tottenham should strongly consider pushing for Pulisic if they can't land Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha this summer.
