Christian Pulisic told Liverpool would be ‘ideal’ as he’s linked with Chelsea exit

Christian Pulisic has been told he would be the perfect fit for Liverpool amid speculation the Chelsea winger could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

Pulisic and has made just 10 Premier League starts this season amid increased competition in Chelsea’s attacking ranks.

And he has struggled to nail down a regular role under new boss Thomas Tuchel, despite having previously played for the manager at Borussia Dortmund.

Now former USA keeper Brad Friedel has told his compatriot to consider a move to Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp looking to bolster his front line options.

“I think Liverpool’s system is a good one for Christian, without a doubt,” the former United States international told  CardsChat.

“He’s very quick, his first steps are quick and even when he gets going, he’s very quick.

“The pressing style that Jurgen Klopp likes to play under, then the quick counter-attack and the runs through the lines, I think he would be able to perform very well in that system.”

Friedel has no doubts about the USA star’s quality, and believes he can still be a success at Chelsea if he stays at Stamford Bridge.

He said: “Pulisic has the potential to be the most successful American player in mainland Europe but it is still relatively early days with a new head coach at Chelsea who I hope he can do well under.

“At the beginning of the season, he was unplayable at times and doing really, really well. Let’s just see how it goes for the US.

“He is our best attacking player, and we’ve got a few of them. We need him to stay injury free, that’s for sure.

“I have no idea if that’s a player that they (Liverpool) are looking at, but that type of system would be ideal for someone like Christian.”
