Spurs have been linked with Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund and an article in The Express says the move would be to boost the clubs stance in the American Market according to the opinion of ESPN pundit and former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner.

Pulisic has been linked with a move to the Premier League and Liverpool and Spurs are rumoured to be interested in the 19-year-old winger and Mariner reckons it could be a wise piece of business for Spurs, with their new stadium set to host NFL games once it has opened.

But Mariner believes Pulisic should stay at Dortmund for the time being at least, because he would not be a starter at Spurs yet.

“I think he is fine where he is, but having said that, you look at (Daniel) Levy, he’s looking to get NFL games in at his new stadium, he’s trying to look at the American market,”:Mariner said.
“How many millions of shirts will they sell? So there’s a business side of this.There’s a playing side and a business side of this.
“I’m sure (Mauricio) Pochettino obviously would love to have him alongside him.

Mariner added: “There’s two things coming into play here. There’s the business side and there’s the football side, the football squad side.I’m going to say stay where you are mate, just for another year.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. There aren’t many players out there who would walk straight into the Spurs team, but if he’s playing in the first team at Dortmund he’s not that far off and if he’s good enough and strong enough on the ball to play he’ll play, his age isn’t really relevant. Wait another year and a richer team might come in making it even harder for him. Either way, he’d have to train and develop the Spurs way before he gets a start. Look at Lucas Moura, you can see he has quality but has maybe struggled to keep up with the positional play at times off the ball at the pace we play at in the PL.

  2. Should this really be the right reason for buying a player ?

    No point wasting our money on a nobody (if thats what he turns out to be)

    Might as well spend it on keeping what we got if they not going to add anything to the party
