Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer questioned whether Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic would be a good fit at Liverpool.
According to the MailOnline, Liverpool are keeping an eye on Pulisic, as he continues to be overlooked by Thomas Tuchel. The 22-year-old has started just one league game under the new Blues boss, the recent 0-0 draw with Leeds United, throwing his future into doubt.
Liverpool, as well as Manchester United and Bayern Munich, look to be potential suitors, but Palmer has his doubts regarding the Reds.
“I’m not sure, I’m not sure. He hasn’t really hit the heights at Chelsea, has he? And that’s not to say he couldn’t hit the heights at Liverpool, another manager, you know, who knows him well, might be able to get the best out of him.
“But the way Liverpool play, [Sadio] Mane, [Mohamed] Salah, the way that the forwards interchange, I’m not sure he fits into that system.”
After a strong end to last season where he was able to score goals against Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal, the 2020/21 campaign has been difficult for Pulisic. The USA international has scored just once in the Premier League so far and has struggled with injury.
He now faces a tough task winning a place in Tuchel’s starting XI, with the ex-Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund manager spoilt for choice in the attacking positions. As things stand, Tuchel can call upon Mason Mount, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech — extremely tough competition for the American.
