It's looking likely that Mane will leave Anfield this summer. With that in mind, Liverpool need to start looking around for his replacement.
However, a new name has joined the fold that no one was expecting. Chelsea's American star Christian Pulisic.
Unfortunately for the German, the report also states that a deal is unlikely due to Chelsea’s valuation of the American international.

Anfield Watch Verdict
Before Chelsea signed Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in 2019 for a reported fee of £57 million, the Reds were heavily linked with the winger.
However, with American Todd Boehly now becoming Chelsea's new owner, they look set to make Pulisic their poster boy to push the club towards American fans.
In 2018, Klopp spoke about Pulisic, as quoted by LFC Transfer Room's Twitter account, saying that he's "more than welcome" to join Liverpool if he ever wanted to play in England.
"At the moment he has a contract with Dortmund. He’s still pretty young and he’s at the perfect place for his development, but if he ever wants to come to England he’s more than welcome," Klopp said.
"If one day he will join us I don’t know. I like him, but we respect contracts."
