Jurgen Klopp is an 'admirer' of Chelsea forward to replace Sadio Mane

Jurgen Klopp could look at Chelsea's Chrisitan Pulisic to replace the departing Sadio Mane.

It's looking likely that Mane will leave Anfield this summer. With that in mind, Liverpool need to start looking around for his replacement.

Names such as Darwin Nunez, Arnaut Danjuma and Harry Kane have all recently been linked with a potential move to Merseyside this summer to replace the Senegalese forward.

However, a new name has joined the fold that no one was expecting. Chelsea's American star Christian Pulisic.

According to Mail Sport, as cited by Anfield Watch's Twitter account, Klopp is an 'admirer' of Pulisic and he'd be interested in signing him if Mane does depart.

Unfortunately for the German, the report also states that a deal is unlikely due to Chelsea’s valuation of the American international.

Before Chelsea signed Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in 2019 for a reported fee of £57 million, the Reds were heavily linked with the winger.

Reports from BILD and Dominic King back in 2018 confirmed Klopp's interest in the American, so it's no surprise that these links are coming up once again.

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."
