Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is a keen admirer of Christian Pulisic but says that it is unlikely that Liverpool FC will be able to sign him from Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds have been linked with a move to bring the talented 19-year-old to Anfield in recent months as Klopp looks to add to his attacking options at the Merseyside club.

Liverpool FC have already been busy in the summer transfer window so far this year, signing Alisson, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri.

However, with less than three weeks of the transfer window remaining, the Reds are still being linked with a number of other players ahead of next season.

Now, Klopp has responded directly to suggestions that the Reds could move to sign Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Klopp told a news conference on Saturday: “I like him. But he has a contract at BVB no? That is the first problem.

“I know people think highly of him. If he wants to play in England one day, he will have a chance to do so. But he has a really good club now.”

Liverpool FC will be aiming to at least challenge for the Premier League title next season after the Reds finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.

The Merseyside outfit, who are yet to win their first trophy under Klopp, reached the Champions League final but they were beaten by Real Madrid in the showpiece back in May.
