Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight at the club’s reportedly imminent bid for Borussia Dortmund sensation Christian Pulisic.
Transfer site Calcio Insider claim Spurs are ready to meet the Bundesliga club’s asking price for the USA international, 19, during the summer’s window.
It is said that the versatile attacker is rated in the £40million bracket after making a huge impact since being fast-tracked into the Dortmund first team.
Pulisic has already made 97 appearances for the German giants as well as 20 for USA and was a mainstay of the side in the recently-completed domestic season in which he scored five goals and supplied seven assists from 42 matches in all competitions.
The speedy forward, who usually plays on the right wing but can also play on the left and centrally, is regarded as one of the outstanding young players in the world.
Spurs supporters are unanimously in favour of pursuing the rising star, hailing him as a “wonder ball” who is an “unreal” player.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Oooooh. That would be interesting. Would no doubt help build the clubs US fanbase too.

Biased of course, but if I were Pulisic I’d prefer Tottenham to Liverpool. Starting XI and thus PT more attainable. #COYS
