Liverpool have been backed to sign Chelsea star Christian Pulisic this summer. Pulisic has struggled for game time since Thomas Tuchel became Chelsea boss in January. The USA international has started just one Premier League match under Tuchel.

That is despite Tuchel knowing Pulisic well, having handed him his professional debut at Borussia Dortmund five years ago.

Reports have linked Liverpool, as well as Manchester United and Bayern Munich, with the 22-year-old due to his lack of action.

Former England striker Kevin Phillips believes Pulisic would be a top signing for Liverpool, claiming he could have a similar impact to Diogo Jota when he moved to Anfield from Wolves last summer.

But Phillips admits he is surprised there is even talk of a move away from Chelsea for the winger.

“When I hear these comments about him leaving Chelsea, I’m just surprised,” Phillips told Football Insider.

“I think he’s a fantastic player but if he is to go, he’s the type of player that has the ability to sit just behind that Liverpool front three.

“He’ll only get better and better as he gets older. It’s like when Jota went to Liverpool, what a signing he’s been.

“So Pulisic could definitely be one of those players if he went to Liverpool.

“If I was a Liverpool supporter I’d like to see him playing in my side.”

Pulisic has featured in the USA’s wins over Jamaica and Northern Ireland in the last week.

Speaking while on international duty, he insisted he will fight for his spot at Chelsea.

“It hasn’t been the easiest thing,” Pulisic said of his recent game time at club level.

“Obviously, I’m a guy who always wants to play, but I think I’m on a really good path.

“I love to take on challenges. I love to, not prove people wrong, but prove myself right in a way. So I’ll just continue to work hard.

“Coming into camp, I’m really just excited to get more minutes and play for my country.

“Regardless of what’s happening at the club level, I’m just thrilled to be here and I’m excited to represent this crest again.

“I was in a similar situation, I think, when I first came to Chelsea, so I had to work my way and earn my position in the team and to finally get some minutes.

“I feel like I did that and I feel like I’m basically going out there and trying to do the same thing now.

“I feel very confident in my form right now and the way I’m feeling and playing, so I think I’m on a good path.”
