One of the best young prospects in the history of United States football could be on his way to the world's best team in the near future.

18-year-old winger Christian Pulisic has been impressing over at Borussia Dortmund, and the American rising star is catching the eye of Barcelona scouts, according to reports in Spain. Pulisic can play on either wing and is a quick, skilled player who can beat defenders one-on-one thanks to his pace and quality.

Pulisic is also being coached by Thomas Tuchel, one of the best tacticians on Earth who loves to develop young players, meaning that the young American could become a very good footballer in a few years. With three goals and four assists in nine appearances for Dortmund this season, the youngster is a seriously good prospect, and Barça are not the only one interested in him.

Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have all been linked with moving for Pulisic in the last few months. But every young player today dreams to play for Barça, so if the Blaugrana are actually interested in him, they would probably be the favorites to land his signing.

This might happen in the future, but it's a good idea to let Pulisic develop for a few more years at Dortmund. He's just 18, and he'll learn and get better with time. Still, an American player at Barça? That'd be cool, and also a great marketing idea for the New York office!
