Report: Liverpool interested in January loan deal for Christian Pulisic

Liverpool are interested in a January loan deal for Christian Pulisic, but 90min reports that Chelsea do not want to let him join another club in the Premier League next month.

Pulisic’s stock has risen again after an impressive showing at the World Cup with the USMNT. He was certainly his country’s most dangerous attacking player, scoring the crucial goal which got Gregg Berhalter’s men out of their group in Qatar.

Nevertheless, Chelsea are open to letting the 24-year-old leave when the window opens.

Liverpool interested in Pulisic loan

90min reports that AC Milan and Inter want to take Pulisic to Italy. Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid also have their eye on the attacking midfielder. However, none of those sides have the funds to cover his wages.

There is also interest from the Premier League, with Liverpool and Newcastle keen to sign Pulisic on loan. But 90min adds that Chelsea have no intention of letting him move to another Premier League side.

Clearly, it is looking unlikely that Liverpool will be able to sign Pulisic next month – particularly if they stick to their guns and pursue a loan deal.

Perhaps there may be more scope for a deal if the Reds are willing to sign Pulisic permanently. But obviously, that is a gamble for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Reports from the Daily Mail recently claimed that Chelsea want £35 million for Pulisic. And his form in the Premier League has probably done little to convince Liverpool fans that he would be worth that kind of money.

That said, he clearly has huge potential. He was described as the ‘superstar‘ of the US side at the World Cup. And he has had some bright moments at Chelsea.

A permanent bid may represent Liverpool’s best chance to get a deal done. But if his other admirers cannot afford his wages, perhaps Chelsea will rethink their stance on loaning him to another English side.
