Report: Tottenham considering move for Christian Pulisic


There is no shortage of transfer rumors surrounding U.S. Men’s National Team star Christian Pulisic, and you can apparently add another Premier League team to the growing list of clubs supposedly interested in his services.

The Telegraph is reporting that Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham are the latest English side looking to make a run at Pulisic.

Spurs had been targeting Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham. However he is expected to remain at Craven Cottage after they won promotion to the Premier League last weekend.

Pulisic not only provides versatility on the pitch, but he is also reportedly desired by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has been vocal about his desire to tap into the American market.

Chelsea and Liverpool have also been linked to the 19-year-old, but it’s uncertain how serious any clubs are in ponying up the reported £50 million Dortmund is asking for him.


  1. Tottenham doens’t have a record of doing anything more than buying American’s and then loaning them out – Yedlin – Cameron Carter-Vickers – i am sure there are more, but Tottenham likes big, tall midfielders – that is not Pulisic. he wont’ play and he will get beaten up in training. Not a good recipe for a 19 year old. this is Levy trying to make a splash at American revenues.

  2. Don’t go there because you will be expected to perform and not given time to develop. Look at all the young players they bought and then loaned out (then sold) :

    Gomes (Brasilian gk), Clinton N’Jie, Capoue, Yedlin, Janssen and many others that I lost track of.

  3. Right now Tottenham is probably better than Dortmund. But going forward, this seems very likely to be a lateral shift, as opposed to a move to a bigger club.

  4. Oh please, no. Sounds about one step removed from being a $10M purchase by Beckham FC to publicize soccer in Miami.

  5. England isn’t the be all, end all. There’s no need to rush out of Dortmund. Lucien Favre is a well respected coach, they qualified for the C.L. and he’s an everyday starter. Pulisic still needs consistency in his game before moving on, IMO.

  6. “he is also reportedly desired by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has been vocal about his desire to tap into the American market.” Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Only go if the coach has a place for you on his gameday roster. If it’s just to sell jerseys, stay at Dortmund.

    • After how they treated Dempsey, my two cents, this is bias central, stay at Dortmund where they play you on your own merits.

      My one concern is he looked exhausted yesterday, I thought he should have been left off or pulled at half. We might consider leaving him off some callups this fall. Get the dude some rest.

    • Additionally, I think Tottenham has more good midfielders than Liverpool so it would be harder for him to get playing time at Spurs. Also, Coach Klopp at Liverpool seems to have admired CP for some time and was coach at Dortmund when Pulisic was first signed and when he lit up the field with their youth team. I think he should stay at Dortmund at least another year, but if he goes, Liverpool is probably the best choice in the EPL.
