After a week of rumors and uncertainty over Christian Pulisic’s future with Borussia Dortmund took another turn on Friday afternoon with fresh reports linking two new clubs to big bids for the young American.
Sports Illustrated reported on Friday that German club RB Leipzig had tabled a $16.8 million offer for Pulisic, while reports emerged on Friday claiming Liverpool has made a $14.45 million bid for the U.S. national team midfielder.
According to Sports Illustrated, a source from Stoke City denied a reported €20 million offer for the 17-year-old, but the report places Red Bull Leipzig on the line of teams bidding for him.
Pulisic broke into the Dortmund first team last season, making nine Bundesliga appearances and scoring two league goals.
Dortmund hit the transfer market hard this summer, adding four new attacking midfielders, from World Cup winners Andre Schurrle and Mario Gotze to young phenoms Ousmane Dembele and Emre Mor.
With such a supply of attacking options, rumors about Pulisic’s place with the club began to swirl during preseason, but his father recently denied any possible move.
Dortmund opens the Bundesliga season on Saturday against Mainz and Wahl said Pulisic is expected to be on the gameday roster.
