"I definitely need to be a more important piece of this team and continue to grow as a leader", the 20-year-old midfielder said ahead of Thursday's friendly against England. Pulisic confirmed he was "100 percent" fit last weekend. "I think that's really important", Pulisic said. After that will be qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and Pulisic figures to be in the prime of his career when the U.S.co-hosts the 2026 tournament with Canada and Mexico.

The 18-year-old is set to make his first England start against the United States of America at Wembley on Thursday, live on Sky Sports Main Event, lining up against club-mate Pulisic.

Numerous other Premier League clubs have been linked with launching bids to try and land the Pennsylvania-born Pulisic, such as Spurs. They've got to come in and they've got to show what they can do and be competent with it. Adams is expected to move there, too, this winter, leaving MLS's New York Red Bulls for sister club RB Leipzig.

"We definitely want a permanent coach and someone who has a plan and someone who has an idea of how we want to play moving forward", Pulisic said.

"He was a very passionate guy, and I loved watching that about him", Pulisic said of England's all-time leading goalscorer. "We also still have a lot to learn".

Inevitably when visiting England, talk will turn to whether Pulisic envisages a move to the Premier League.

The 20-year-old is already a regular at the Westfalonstadion and has provided 3 goals as well as 4 assists in his 12 appearances so far this campaign to help Dortmund storm to the top of the Bundesliga table where they sit seven points ahead of Bayern Munich after beating them 3-2 last week. I want to go in and to be focused every day and in training.

"Then when the time comes for me to talk in the breaks about my future, then that is when those things happen".
