Borussia Dortmund have reiterated their desire to keep Christian Pulisic at the Westfalenstadion and have told Liverpool not to bother “wasting their time”.
The Reds have been linked with the American youngster on and off for months with Klopp thought to have the 18-year-old down as one of his top targets.
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has only recently told the Reds “it’s not worth the effort” after an £11million bid was rejected in the summer transfer window.

Pulisic is contracted to BVB until 2019 and is seen as an important first-team player having made 16 appearances so far this campaign.
And Zorc has backed up his earlier comments by once again telling Liverpool that there would be no point in exploring the possibility of signing Pulisic.
“We have communicated very clearly that we won’t sell Christian, and that he’s very much part of our plans,” Zorc told Bild on Tuesday. “Liverpool don’t need to waste time. They can save their money.”
