There appears to be a new contender in the Christian Pulisic sweepstakes, as an England Premier League side has reportedly offered a large sup for the 17-year-old star.
German outlet Bild reported Thursday that Stoke City have submitted a bid of €20 million for the young American winger. The Premier League side reportedly joins the likes of RB Leipzig and CSKA Moscow in pursuit of the 17-year-old Pennsylvania native. However, the Pulisic reports come despite his father’s statements that he had no interest in leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer.
The reported fee would make Pulisic the most valued and expensive American player ever by a large margin, eclipsing Jozy Altidore’s $13 million move from AZ to Sunderland.
Pulisic was left out of Dortmund’s German SuperCup squad, but saw action in the team’s final friendly on Wednesday afternoon as he recorded a goal against German third division side Hallescher FC. Dortmund open their season this Saturday with a match against FC Mainz 05, and it remains to be seen how much time Pulisic will earn with the German giants this season.
What do you think of the latest Pulisic news? Would a move to the Premier League suit the young American, or should he stick it out at Dortmund and battle for playing time?
