Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he is a big fan of U.S. national team and Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic, but played down a possible move for the teenager.

Pulisic has been consistently linked with a move to Anfield to play under Klopp, who was with the Bundesliga side when the winger was making his way through the youth ranks.
