Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ‘likes’ Chelsea attacker as Reds seek Sadio Mane replacement | Football | Sport


Mane has enjoyed a sensational career at Liverpool since moving to Anfield from Southampton in 2016. During his time in the north west, the 30-year-old has lifted the Champions League, Premier League and Club World Cup trophies. And in the most recent campaign he helped Klopp’s team win the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

But Mane appears to be on his way out of Anfield after six years, with reports suggesting he is on the brink of signing a three-year contract with Bayern. And that means Klopp might decide to bring in a new forward to ensure his attack can remain prolific.

According to the Daily Mail, Pulisic is someone Klopp admires. But no deal is likely at his current valuation. Transfermarkt currently values the USA international at over £40million. So Klopp could attempt to thrash out a cut-price deal with Chelsea for the ace. But if that doesn’t work, it appears he will turn his attentions elsewhere.

But the 23-year-old has been struck by a series of injuries during his time in west London and has struggled to muster a regular starting place under Thomas Tuchel. And the former Bundesliga star could be open to a move to Merseyside.

Klopp is a manager who is able to get the most out of his forwards. And Pulisic might decide he wants to play under the German next season. But he would have to battle with the likes of Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah and Fabio Carvalho for a regular starting place.

Pulisic, who has also been linked with Juventus, has admitted he just wants to be on the pitch as much as possible. “Of course, I want to get more playing time,” the ace revealed this week. “I want to be on the field as much as I can and be the sharpest I can be and fit as well. I think I still got a lot of games, but it’s always something that I’m working at and trying to be regular at club level.”
