Real Madrid take on Liverpool in the chase for Christian Pulisic



Liverpool are faced with a bigger challenge in their quest to sign Borrusia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic as Real Madrid are reportedly also in the race to sign the footballing prospect.

Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp is said to be interested in the young midfielder as he sees him as a potential replacement for Phillipe Coutinho should he join Barcelona in January after an earlier move to the Spanish side failed in the summer.

The USA international is said to have caught the attention of Real Madrid President Fiorentino Perez after Barcelona beat them to the signing of Ousmane Dembele in the summer.

The 19-year-old shot into limelight with Borussia Dortmund last season with 5 goals and 13 assists in 43 appearances. He caught the attention of spectators around the world during his dazzling performance against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last year with an equalizing assist for Andre Schurrle.

With Real Madrid in the race to sign Pulisic, Liverpool will have to move quickly in their bid to sign the American as they need to strengthen their side due to the lacklustre performances they have put up so far this season at the local league despite adding players like Mohammad Sallah and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain to their attacking options earlier in the summer.
