Transfer Talk: Pulisic is an American dream for Liverpool and Barca
Liverpool and Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.
The American international, 23, has had a stop-start season due to injury problems.
He was snapped up by the Blues in January 2019 for £58million but was loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign.
And according to El Nacional, he could now be set to leave after just two full seasons at Stamford Bridge.
But while Barca would be an ideal destination, the Spanish giants are still battling crippling financial problems — which may restrict new boss Xavi from bringing in fresh faces.
Having worked with him at Dortmund, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a keen admirer of the Blues ace.
Whether Chelsea would sell to another Premier League club is unclear but the Reds would be an attractive proposition for Pulisic, particularly if regular first-team action was on offer.
Despite his injury problems, he has scored twice in just three league appearances so far this term.
