Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, is hoping to finally land Dortmund Christian Pulisic as he set to make his third bid for the player.
Klopp is a big fan of the 19-year-old United States international who can play as a midfielder or an attacking midfielder.
The Red boss has failed with two previous bids to sign him but, with two years left on his contract, Pusilic could become available this summer.
The German initially tried to bring Pulisic to Anfield in 2016, but his £11m bid was rejected and Reds' scouts have since continued to monitor his progress since.
Arsenal who likes building youngsters is also monitoring the player but Pusilic is thought to favour a move to Anfield.
However, Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc says he “knows nothing” about a potential Liverpool move.
Pulisic has become Dortmund's most valuable asset following the exits of Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the last year.
And Zorc says he has no knowledge of a potential big-money swoop from the Champions League finalists.
While speaking to Bild, he admitted: “I’m in constant contact with Jurgen Klopp,”
“But I know nothing about that.”
Dortmund are desperate to hand Pulisic a new contract but a deal that was discussed back in February remains unsigned.
Manchester United are also keeping tabs on a player whose contract at the Westfalenstadion has two years left to run.
Bayern Munich have also been watching, as club chiefs Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge actively seek to bring down the age of the squad and seek long-term replacements for veteran pair Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
Pulisic has emerged as the United States’ leading player, scoring nine goals in 20 caps, and has already been described as football's "first American superstar".
His potential, both from a football and commercial standpoint - he already has a major deal with American brand Nike - is huge.
That partially explains why Liverpool, United and Arsenal - all under American ownership - are keen on bringing Pulisic to the Premier League.
