Christian Pulisic Says LeBron James a 'Big Inspiration' for Him

Stoke City's goalkeeper Jack Butland in action against Liverpool during the Premier League match at the Britannia Stadium

Two soccer powerhouses could soon be fighting over America's wonder boy.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is seeking adequate reinforcement to strengthen his attack, and Pulisic is one of the players that caught his eye.

Dortmund are said to be interested in their former playmaker Mkhitaryan, who joined United from BVB in the summer of 2016, and the Red Devils are willing to swap at the Armenia worldwide for Pulisic should Dortmund wish to do so, though wages could prove to be a sticking point.

Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly being targeted by Manchester United, who are ready to compete with arch-rivals Liverpool for the U.S. international's signature in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are said to be willing to challenge Premier League rivals Liverpool, should the Reds attempt to sign 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Christian Pulisic this summer.

The biggest obstacle standing in the way of a transfer is the importance Pulisic places on playing time, which he's gradually earned with Dortmund since joining the first team in January 2016.

Pulisic himself puts his improvement as a player down to the fact he has been given so much game time at Dortmund. He has also started four of five games in the Champions League.

"It's definitely one of my biggest passions - I played every day after school with all my friends from high school in Pennsylvania", Pulisic said.

Pulisic won the US Soccer Federation's Male Player of the Year award last month.

Pulisic's development showed a year ago in worldwide competition, in which he led the USA men's national team with six goals and four assists in nine games started. When you play against the best players, you're going to grow. "Just being a good team player with this team, just being a piece of the puzzle is really important for me".

Jose Mourinho has set his sights on securing a winger this season after the club's failure to complete a deal for Ivan Perisic. "I'm a big fan, and he's a big inspiration of mine".
