Tottenham set their sights on Borussia Dortmund teenager

Long term Liverpool target, Christian Pulisic was scouted by Tottenham chief scout Steve Hitchen on Wednesday. The young American has been an important player for Dortmund since breaking into the club’s first team.

Jurgen Klopp is a long term admirer of Pulisic and had a bid in the region of £12 Million for the youngster rejected last summer. He is still interested in Pulisic but has prioritised other targets.

This has given Tottenham encouragement in their pursuit of the American. Another teenager, Kylian Mbappe stole the show on Wednesday with a brace for AS Monaco, but it was after Pulisic came into the pitch at half time that Borussia Dortmund came to life and scored two consolation goals.

Tottenham are building one of the youngest teams in Europe and they believe that Pulisic is one the players they should have in their ranks. Should they be impressed by Pulisic’s performance on Wednesday, they would likely make a bid for the teenager sooner rather than later.

Pulisic is only 18 but he is adjusting well to life as a professional. Tottenham hope that they can prise him away from the Germans.
