There’s been a lot of talk surrounding Christian Pulisic, well, for the last 8 months or so. Ever since the 17-year-old was called up to the Borussia Dortmund first team, he’s been the center of attention both here and in Germany.

Despite having a meteoric rise last season, the U.S. international could be headed for a move away this summer.

Earlier this week, German outlet BILD reported that Stoke City had offered 20 million euros for the American youngster. However, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl says that’s untrue and a bid was never officially submitted.

On the other hand, Wahl reports that Red Bull Leipzig in the Bundesliga is lining up a 15 million euro offer for Pulisic before the transfer window closes. He also heard from a source close to the player that there’s a 50/50 chance of him leaving the German giants before the window shuts.

Wahl also reports that Pulisic turned down a contract extension from Dortmund earlier this year and would do so again if offered one now. He is apparently disappointed in the mass additions of attacking players this summer and wants to play as much as he can.

That’s the latest update in the ongoing transfer saga of Christian Pulisic. Will he have a new club soon? It seems entirely possible. Anything can happen during the transfer season. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
