Reports: Liverpool Monitoring Dortmund young sensation that has ‘blown away’ Jurgen Klopp
Jurgen Klopp is allegedly “blown away” with the young talent Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund, who Liverpool are supposedly interested in ‘luring’ to Anfield.
According to a report from Football Insider, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and PSG are all showing interest in the 17-year-old who has already made 52 professional appearances for the Bundesliga team (via Football365).
It will be fascinating to see whether we think about making a move for the young player given that the FA Cup champions are reportedly “keeping close tabs” on the Germany U21 international.
One of Europe’s most promising prospects, Moukoko has made 15 appearances for Edin Terzic’s team this season (in all competitions) and has contributed three goals and four assists.
Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, for example, are presently out with significant injuries, so the team might feel pressured to strengthen their offensive alternatives during the January transfer window.
But with Darwin Nunez, Mo Salah, and Bobby Firmino all routinely finding the back of the net in recent weeks, we’re still well-stocked at the top of the pitch.
Although Dortmund are eager to grant the teenager a new long-term contract to ensure that he continues to develop in Germany, several sources claim that the 17-year-old has not yet agreed to new terms and may leave the team for free at the end of the season when his current deal ends.
