Liverpool ‘leading transfer race for 17-year-old Dortmund starlet Youssoufa Moukoko with Barcelona and PSG also keen’

LIVERPOOL will face competition in their pursuit of signing Youssoufa Moukoko, according to reports.

The Borussia Dortmund starlet, 17, is being tracked by a host of top clubs.

Youssoufa Moukoko has pushed his way into the Borussia Dortmund first team

But The Reds are the best positioned to land him, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

They report this despite interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, and from Paris Saint-Germain.

Jurgen Klopp’s interest in the attacker is said to be quite acute, with him being impressed by his younger compatriot’s performances.

While he has mostly appeared off the bench for his club this season, Moukoko has still returned a stellar goal record.

He has four goals and three assists in just 443 minutes of action in the Bundesliga this season.

The teenager also added an assist to his record in the Champions League in the sole game he started in the group stages.

Moukoko’s contract expires next summer, and Klopp would like to future-proof his attack by adding him to the ranks.

In addition, his strong form when playing has seen him wrestle a spot into the main league side – starting each of the last three games.


Moukoko is also outperforming his Expected Goals this season, showing that he has been more clinical than the average striker would be presented with the same chances.

Liverpool have been enduring a stuttering season so far, with results keeping them far off of the pace of the title fight now set to be fought out between Arsenal and Manchester City.

Most recently they lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest, with another poor away day plaguing them.

Elsewhere in the transfer market, they are also set to battle fierce rivals Manchester United for the signings of Frenkie de Jong and Chicago Fire wonderkid Jhon Duran.
