LAZY FAN EXCLUSIVE: Spurs to chase Dortmund wonderkid

19-year-old winger Christian Pulisic has already made nearly 100 appearances for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and the American is already one of the world’s most highly coveted youngsters.

Pulisic has been described as “a modern game’s flamboyant number 10” and enjoys taking on defenders and dribbling past them. The youngster is confident, with great vision, technical ability and quick feet and would be an asset to any team should he decide to leave Dortmund.

Lazy Fan Sports can exclusively report that one of those many clubs interested in the American’s services is Tottenham Hotspur as they look to strengthen their attacking forces and make a real push for the Premier League title in their first season at their new stadium.

Spurs have sights set on Pulisic

Dortmund have just appointed a new manager in Lucien Favre who joined from French side Nice and are looking to challenge Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title after only finishing fourth last season behind Bayern, Schalke and Hoffenheim.

As a result, they are unlikely to want to let one of their premier talents leave and they are certainly not in a financial situation where they need to cash in one of their biggest assets.

Spurs, of course, are not the only Premier League side linked with Pulisic with the likes of Liverpool, whose manager Jurgen Klopp was at Dortmund when Pulisic was starring for Dortmund’s youth sides, getting heavily rumoured as pursuing Pulisic as well.

However, Spurs may be considered an ideal destination for the winger given their track record when it comes to giving opportunities to young players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Unfortunately for Spurs fans, despite their legitimate interest in the American superstar, Dortmund simply have no reason to sell Pulisic as it stands and unless they can turn his head massively then it would appear a deal is unlikely.
