Christian Pulisic is seen as a big part of Borussia Dortmund’s future. The 17 year old is already a full US international and has already played, and scored, for Dortmund’s first team.

German newspaper Bild report that Stoke City are ready with a €20m move to sign the Bundesliga club’s great hope. Pulisic has a contract with Dortmund until June 2018, but he’s concerned at a potential lack of playing time.

Bild say the youngster doesn’t want his career to stall at Dortmund, behind the likes of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, Andre Schurrle, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Shinji Kagawa.

Bild say Dortmund general manager Michael Zorc refused to deny Stoke City interest: “I can only say that there are many different clubs for many different players, offers and requests.”
