'In one word': Journalist asked a 'very senior level' Liverpool source about their interest in Christian Pulisic

Journalist Ben Jacobs asked a ‘very senior’ Liverpool source about their interest in Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic. The American could be on the market this summer.

The Athletic reported this week that a Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic was ‘viable’. Chelsea’s new owners are presumably open to a sale, while the Reds believe the American could do a job for them.

But how likely is it? Well, journalist Ben Jacobs says he asked someone at Liverpool about the likelihood of a transfer this summer.

“I put that possible link between Pulisic and Liverpool directly to a Liverpool source – at very senior level and with huge knowledge of their recruitment,” Jacobs told the Football Terrace.

“The response I got, in one word, was ‘nonsense’. So I don’t think that Liverpool are seriously considering Pulisic.”

Liverpool source denies Christian Pulisic interest

So this certainly suggests that Liverpool aren’t moving for Pulisic anytime soon and honestly, that doesn’t surprise us. The winger would come at a premium and Chelsea don’t exactly like selling to their rivals. We’re also just not certain that he’s the right player for now.

Liverpool don’t need a winger, even with Sadio Mané potentially leaving the club. Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota all play wide – they need someone who can at least play centrally on top of that.

And that’s why there’s such an apparent interest in Darwin Nunez. He’s much more along the lines of what Liverpool need right now, even if Pulisic could certainly provide something special in Red.

But who knows? There are doubts of Salah’s future, while Pulisic is one of the few wingers around who can offer a threat on both flanks. A move would make sense at some point. We’re just not sure he’s worth the money for Liverpool as things stand.
