Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is reportedly considering a summer raid on his former side Borussia Dortmund for highly-rated American winger Christian Pulisic.
This one is surely a report that would pleased the Arsenal fans. It’s been reported that the Germany international tried signing the American last summer who earn his senior team call-up shortly before Klopp left Dortmund in 2015 for Liverpool.
It’s reported that Arsenal are unwilling to give up on chances of signing him, although his the move for the winger would cost the club high as Bild put a figure of €60m (£53m) or more on any potential move. Whether Pulisic’s is worth that amount remains to be seen, but the interest appears unlikely to drop.
The 19-year-old Pulisic will not be going to the World Cup this summer after the United States failed to qualify for the first time since 1986, but he’s enjoyed another promising year at club level.
The youngster has managed 12 combined goals and assists in 40 appearances in all competitions for the club this season, starting 25 times in the Bundesliga as Dortmund battle to secure Champions League football for next season.
He played a full 90 minutes in Champions League games against Tottenham and Real Madrid earlier this season, but a bout of illness ruled him out of the Europa League last 16 second leg against Red Bull Salzburg as Dortmund surprisingly exited the competition.
