    This doesnt appear to make much sense.

    I cant imagine Dortmund rushing to sell, and i cant imagine a youngster rushing to leave Dortmund.

    Actually there are enough attacking midfielders in LFC squad.

    I also don't believe Klopp would destroy his friendship with Dortmund fans, Zorc, Watzke, Pulisic's father etc.

    Stoke offered £20m, it doesn't make sense to offer £11m then.

    well that is strange, Klopp has also bought Karius from Mainz and I think everything is fine with Mainz!

    Subotic was from Mainz as well.

    But Klopp said that he will not damage his former club Dortmund.
    He didn't say it regarding Mainz.

    It's a business transaction it's not damaging anybody. Dortmund can decline if they choose. How exactly would he be damaging his relationship with the dad if he wanted to sign his son?

    To be fair I won't be happy with klopp if he misses out on opportunity me because he doesn't want to offend his ex director of football that would rediculous. End of the day if he comes here it's because all parties wanted the deal to happen.

    And then Dortmund ruined it all by getting Dembele when Klopp wanted him and since then your club's been dead to Jurgen. He's only been here six months and already he's saying the atmosphere he's experienced at Anfield beats anything else.

    Stoke didn't offer £20m for him , don't be ridiculous and don't believe every silly rumour you read.

    ok, what I mean, it could be that IF Dortmund would want to sell him, the club or the guy would prefer a move to Klopp, I dont see any damage if both sides agree.

    Dembele was not from Liverpool but Pulic is from Dortmund, you can not compare that situations.

    And Zorc was in contact with Dembele since very long time. Klopp knew that and never said that he is going to sign Dembele for Liverpool, just some journalists linked the young guy with LFC.

    It is absolutely accurate to say that when Klopp moved away from Dortmund, Pulisic was left back at the club.

    Been waiting for an opportunity to use that one ;-)

    Yes and they still don't want Götze back but Tuchel didn't ask them.

    I'm not happy with this decision as well. I would prefer to develop Pulisic than to have Götze.

    ok, pls, how much euros are 11mio sterling? maybe Klopp hasn't noticed that the sterling crashed a bit down, no he surely has, but how much is the difference ?

    Makes sense. The one thing everyone on the forums agree with is that we need AMs more than anything else. If only we had a couple more players who could play in the 3 behind the striker.

    So they are all quoting BILD which we all know is bullshit, and by the €20m is not £20m.
    So again stoke didn't bid £20m.

    It wouldn't be Liverpool in the modern era if we didn't have inexplicable gaping holes in the squad, particularly in defensively important positions.

    Oh, sorry, I see now, it's € not £.
    But aren't €20m still more than £11m?

    The point being if it's not reported by anyone reliable then we know its not true. If you believe every bloody rumour then we'd have bid for 1000 different players this summer alone.

    Well, it's been widely-reported (as you say, from the same source) by outlets that actually do check sources before they report, so there's probably at least something to it, although it may be nothing more than some expressed interest.

    I don't like BILD but if it writes about sport transfers it's not automatically unreliable.

    If Dortmund sell, it means they feel the money offered adequately compensates them for the player. There would be no reason for hard feelings.

    I don't see how it damages Dortmund. They bought a bunch of attacking players this window who will all slot in ahead of Pulisic: Goetze, Demebele, Schurrle. So he would probably struggle to find playing time.

    Not to mention, didn't Pulisic join Dortmund on Klopp's watch? So I could see him wanting to bring a former player in that he had been keeping an eye on. On top of that at the age of 17 years old, Pulisic was likely 3 years away from being ready for serious minutes at Dortmund.

    Moving on from a younger player when there are older more capable talents brought in ahead of him would hardly hurt Dortmund, it would be a shifting of assets. Potential for cash, which can be used for future transfers when needed.
