According to the printed edition of Kicker, via Calcio Mercato, Tottenham Hotspur have approached Borussia Dortmund over a move for attacker Christian Pulisic in this summer’s transfer window.
The 19-year-old, who is valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Liverpool said to be amongst the clubs interested in his services.
The United States international will not turn 20 until later this year, but has already made 97 first-team appearances for Dortmund – scoring 12 times and registering 20 assists.
It is understood that Tottenham have approached Dortmund over a potential move, and the English club’s supporters have been reacting to the news.
It would be fair to say that the majority are in favour of their club moving for Pulisic, although that is not a view shared by all.
Indeed, one fan featured in this article claims that Lucas Moura should be given the chance to secure a regular spot in the team after struggling for football following his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain in January.

I don’t want Pulisic at Spurs, a player who can’t even do bits at the Bundesliga. How is he supposed to do them in the Premier League? Not to mention that he couldn’t get his country to the World Cup when USA are clearly in the easiest WC qualifications group except for Mexico.
