Two soccer powerhouses could soon be fighting over America's wonder boy.

Christian Pulisic has become one of the hottest names in the United States, and the 19-year-old attacker is drawing buzz from some of England's top clubs, according to the Independent.

Dortmund are said to be interested in their former playmaker Mkhitaryan, who joined United from BVB in the summer of 2016, and the Red Devils are willing to swap at the Armenia global for Pulisic should Dortmund wish to do so, though wages could prove to be a sticking point.

Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho are both enamored with Pulisic, who could give the USA the representation it so heavily lacks in Premier League play.

The biggest obstacle standing in the way of a transfer is the importance Pulisic places on playing time, which he's gradually earned with Dortmund since joining the first team in January 2016.

The France Under-21 global has made just six appearances for Spurs this campaign, only playing once in the Premier League. But just nine starts later, the midfielder has not found first-team football easy to come by at the North London club.

Aubameyang has notched 13 goals in 15 Bundesliga games for Dortmund this season. "I learned from going from Under-17 to Under-19 and fighting every day with other players and how we battled". "It's really about developing what we already have into [something] even better and I think if we continue to do that then of course players will come up and there will be new talents and new things going on", he explained.

Pulisic has also emerged as a star on the United States men's national team, scoring nine goals in 20 caps with the squad. I'm learning a lot: "tactically, technically, gaining strength".

Before the next World Cup rolls around, Pulisic could get a taste of winning pedigree with a team like Manchester United, the most successful club in Premier League history and one Pulisic has said he rooted for as a child.

However, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho also likes the player very much, and he would reportedly do anything in his power to beat Liverpool in this race. "I'd rather see the club take their time rather than hastily spend it on players who might not be up to it", Thompson told SkySports. "That's what I loved about him".
