Jurgen Klopp has long been an admirer of Christian Pulisic - so much so that links between the United States forward Liverpool have resurfaced ahead of the summer transfer window.

It's already over two years since Chelsea splashed out £58million to sign Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund, where he joined the academy, aged 15, while the charismatic German was in charge of the first-team.

Speaking previously about the American, Klopp said: "If Christian would at one point join us, I don't know.

Pulisic has since shown glimpses of the ability that led Chelsea to stump up the cash, but the American, 22, is by no means a stand-out under recently-appointed Thomas Tuchel - another man with Dortmund connections.

Before that deal, speculation was rife over a possible switch to Anfield instead - but Klopp stopped short of signing a highly-rated prospect that he knew well.

However, that was only the second time that Pulisic - capped 36 times by the United States - was handed a place in the Chelsea line-up for Premier League duty since Tuchel replaced Blues' legend Frank Lampard back in January.

Despite this season's struggles - although a top-four finish remains a possibility - Klopp's stance during that transfer summer window was, almost immediately, vindicated.
