REASON: Why Liverpool prepared to sell Fabinho and fund £70million 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is determined to win a £70million battle with Chelsea for USA sensation Christian Pulisic.

Jurgen Klopp has been aware of the 20-year-old’s potential ever since the attacking midfielder joined his former club Borussia Dortmund almost four years ago and now it’s the right time to purchase the talented player.

An Anfield source said: “Having watched Christian develop there is no way Jurgen is going to back off now. He knows he is a talent who can light up the Premier League.”

Any transfer could be through by the departure of Brazilian Fabinho who has failed to make an impact since joining in the summer for £43.7m from Monaco.

Pulisic’s contract runs down in 2020 and Dortmund will be forced to cash in on one of the brightest young start of the Bundesliga.
