Liverpool face competition for Christian Pulisic

  Liverpool face competition for Christian Pulisic Manchester United are trying to hijack Liverpool’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Christian Pulisic, report the Liverpool Echo. The 19-year-old is already an integral part of Dortmund’s team, having played over 75 games for them already, and that has made him one of Europe’s hottest young players. The Reds have long been admirers of the American, with him being part of the youth ranks during Jurgen Klopp’s final few months in Germany. However, United are now looking for someone like Pulisic, and are expected to use Anthony Martial as a makeweight to sign him. That would make it a player-plus-cash deal, but would leave the German side without having to sign a replacement and with Martial still only 22, it would be an attractive offer. The Frenchman has seemingly fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho, who is now ready to offload the forward. Liverpool will still be confident they can sign Pulisic, and will hope their Champions League campaign will be enough to entice him, although they’ll need to stump up a serious fee to get him.

Liverpool consider summer move for Wilfried Zaha .
Liverpool are one of the sides keeping tabs on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha with a view to a possible summer move, according to the Daily Mirror. Zaha’s former club Manchester United seem to be the only top club not interested in signing the Ivorian star as Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal are also said to be considering making a bid for him. Spurs are most likely to make the first move on Zaha, as Man City’s first choice would be Riyad Mahrez, and Chelsea and Arsenal still need to resolve their manager situations. Champions League finalists Liverpool could also be in with a shout but Palace will be looking for big money for one of the hottest properties in the league. Ex-Eagles chaiman Simon Jordan thinks the Ivorian star could go for between £50m and £70m. “I think Wilfried Zaha is a £50million to £70million player in this market place. If you put him in a side that has some real balance and poise about it, you’d only get more from him. I think £50m would be the lowest he should go for. I think he’ll go for nearer £70m.” The 25-year-old said last week that he can’t see himself leaving Palace this window but isn’t ruling out a return to one of the top six clubs at some point in the future.
