Long-term Liverpool target Christian Pulisic admitted that he is a big fan of the Premier League, when speaking exclusively to ESPN, possibly leaving the door open to a move to Anfield in the future in the process.

Jürgen Klopp is a keen admirer of the young American, according to German media outlet Sport 1, who claim that Borussia Dortmund would be open to selling him, but not for a penny less than €100 million (£88.1 million).

The 19-year-old left the door open for a move to England, when speaking exclusively to ESPN:

"Of course, the Premier League is an unbelievable league. You never know in football what can happen, so right now, I’m focused with Dortmund, and yeah, that’s that.”

Is Pulisic the real deal, though?

At just 19 years of age, the American has already showcased his incredible talent at the very highest level with Dortmund, and he will surely only get better.

In 81 career appearances for the Bundesliga side, he has been directly involved in 26 goals, and the level of maturity with which he operates defies his tender years.

Pulisic can play anywhere along the front-line - something that is a prerequisite for a Klopp signing, given his penchant for his attackers to interchange position.

Is he worth £88.1 million?

In today's current climate, yes.

If Virgil van Dijk is worth £75 million, Danny Drinkwater £35 million and Tiemoue Bakayoko £40 million, then Pulisic would surely be considered good value at £88.1 million.

He arguably still has a decade ahead of him until he reaches his peek, and if he continues to progress in the manner that he has done of late, he has the ability to become one of the world's best players.
