Chelsea completed the £58m signing of Borussia Dortmund winger and one-time Liverpool target Christian Pulisic on Wednesday, and Reds fans were quick to have their say on the move on Twitter.
The Telegraph reported in November that the Merseyside outfit and the Blues were keen on a move for the 20-year-old attacker, and while there is no official evidence that Jurgen Klopp wanted him in more recent times, the club from the capital have won the race for his signature.
On the flanks may have been a position that Klopp was keen to strengthen previously, but given he has Sadio Mane and Mo Salah available to him – as well as the success stories of Xherdan Shaqiri and Derby County loanee Harry Wilson – it is certainly no longer a priority.
Liverpool supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the big-money move, and while one said “Pulisic is just a poor man’s Harry Wilson”, another described it as a “huge loss for Liverpool”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
A lot going round about how #LFC can’t have wanted Pulisic that badly, Klopp has someone else lined up or, as per the Echo, they already have Shaqiri and Pulisic wouldn’t get in the team. Not buying it. Klopp loves him. Chelsea just made a better offer. It’s a shame.

Pulisic is just a poor mans Harry Wilson

Not arsed. Pulisic too young and never played in England. Wilson is miles ahead of him in his development for playing in the Premier League. Chelsea better know what they're doing, very risky transfer

Thank God we didn’t sign Pulisic. Used that money on a Isco or something. Mane is better. Don’t need another winger.

If there was any like-for-like replacement for Sadio Mane in the market, that player would be Christian Pulisic. Huge loss for Liverpool.

We are waiting for Timo Werner rather Pulisic can never play ahead of Mane and he is not better than Wilson

I like Pulisic but with Shaqiri doing bits and Ox due back, where would he fit in? Klopp was right not to pursue him

Klopp is a genius. Not signing Pulisic right now for 50+mil but when Chelsea ruin him we can pick him up for 20 mil. pic.twitter.com/LYOwUHz41U
