Anfield Update: 'Unbelievable' £40m attacker wanted by Klopp confirms transfer 'to Liverpool' is a non-starter

One of Liverpool's top transfer targets has revealed his 'respect' for Jurgen Klopp, and clarified his position on a potential move to Anfield.

Liverpool have been regularly linked with a move for Pulisic over the last year, and although he signed a new contract in January, the Liverpool Echo recently claimed that Klopp still plans to pursue the 'unbelievable' attacker.

When asked this week about his decision to reject Liverpool last summer, £40m-rated Pulisic noted:

"I have respect for Klopp and I know him - he was very welcoming to me here - but I was never really thinking about going to Liverpool"

Pulisic also made it clear he has no plans to leave anytime soon:

"Dortmund have given me everything. If I work very hard here I will play, and I love this club.”

This deal was always a non-starter - bar the obvious (money) there's simply no credible reason for Pulisic to leave a progressive, well-run Champions League club like Dortmund, especially when he gets regular game time in one of Europe's top leagues (26 appearances so far this season).

What can Liverpool offer Pulisic that Dortmund can't? Sadly, the answer is nothing. Even the fabled LFC atmosphere is (arguably) matched by BVB's rabid fans, and the Westfalonstadion is just as much of a cauldron of noise as Anfield.

Pulisic is not the only show in town, and it's surely time to permanently draw a line through this particular transfer rumour...

BEV (LADYLIVERBIRD) UPDATE (From Case)

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
