Liverpool have been linked with American international and Dortmund star Christian Pulisic in the past and now, the playmaker is once again in the focus.

According to Mirror Sport, the Reds are prepared to sell summer signing Fabinho in order to sign Pulisic. It is mentioned that Jurgen Klopp is determined to win a £70m battle with Chelsea for the USA winger.

As per an Anfield source (Mirror Sport):

“Having watched Christian develop, there is no way Jurgen is going to back off now. He knows he is a talent who can light up the Premier League.”

The 20-year-old starlet is naturally a right winger but he can be deployed in any position in the attack.

This season, so far, he has netted 3 goals and provided 4 assists in 12 outings for the German Bundesliga side, who are in fantastic form at the moment.

Liverpool do need to sign a top attacker to replace Coutinho and amplify the quality and depth of their offense but they should not sell Fabinho.

So far, the Brazilian international has only started 3 PL games and deserves a fair chance. He was brilliant against Fulham and Cardiff but failed to impress against Arsenal. He was also rock solid in the Champions League at Anfield vs Red Star Belgrade.

Fabinho is a specialist play breaker unlike Henderson and if Liverpool really need to offload a midfielder then they should think about selling the skipper or Adam Lallana.
