Sources claim that Liverpool are interested in young Dortmund striker Youssoufa Moukoko. The 18-year-old talented striker’s contract is set to expire.
Youssoufa to Liverpool done deal?
Moukoko is one of the most existing young players in Europe. The young prodigy is already having 6 goals and 6 assists to his name in 22 games.
The Cameroon-born German striker was crowned as the Bundesliga’s youngest-ever player when he debut a day after his 16th birthday in 2020. He also broke the Champions League record as the youngest player to play in the tournament. Only at the age of 18, he is a regular starter for the German side.
But there is a huge possibility that Youssoufa Moukoko could Leave BvB as a free agent.
Is LFC’s striker drought finally over?
According to the Times, the Merseyside giants are among the clubs monitoring the situation as his contract runs out within a few months.
The English giants are also joined by Manchester United and Chelsea in pursuit of the German wonder kid.
The Dortmund striker is looking for a long-term contract after his successful spell in Germany.
Aiming for the top 4
Liverpool are currently sitting in the 6th place in the Premier League table with the top 4 at stake. After the departure of Sadio Mane and the latest injuries of Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, the Merseyside giants are desperate to find a new striker to increase their attacking input.
Moukoko’s previous offer was £85,000 per week. His new wage demand is £115,000 per week. This makes the deal difficult for LFC. As it is unclear whether the English side will offer him so much or perhaps the German agrees to accept a lower salary.
It is undeniable that Jurgen Klopp is a dream manager for any player. His ability to transform players into legends is quite commendable.
Will Youssoufa join the Reds to reach his true potential or will he make a money-driven move?
