Three Premier League Clubs Battling It Out For Christian Pulisic Signature
Borussia Dortmund and United States youngster Christian Pulisic is a man in demand.
The 18-year old, who has been handed a start at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid tonight, is attracting plenty of interest from Premier League clubs.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with the United States international and there were reports that Jurgen Klopp tried to sign the player from his former club in the summer.
They remain interested in the United States' youngest ever American to score in a World Cup qualifier, but Italian outlet CalcioMercato report that both Arsenal and Tottenham are also keen on the winger. There is even a suggestion that the clubs will follow up their interest by trying to arrange a transfer in January.
Yet it is clear that Dortmund have no desire to sell one of their crown jewels, although sporting director Michael Zorc did say that the club did receive offers for Pulisic in the summer.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, he said:
"There have been some offers for him in the summer window from England and from German clubs, but we would like to have him here and develop him here.
"We did not educate him to sell him. We have a long-running contract until 2019, but because of his development the club is ready to speak to him to prolong his contract at any time."
Pulisic has been in fine form for Thomas Tuchel's men this season, scoring three times and contributing further with five assists in all competitions.
