Man Utd and Liverpool join Premier League rivals Chelsea in race to sign Borussia Dortmund starlet Youssoufa Moukoko
Youssoufa Moukoko is a forward for Borussia Dortmund and Germany. Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool have joined forces with Chelsea in their pursuit of Moukoko’s signature.
Moukoko, who is only 18 years old, is considered to be one of the most intriguing young stars in football due to the facт that he has already made more than 50 appearances for Dortmund and has made his debut for his country.
It would appear that the Cameroonian sensation is following in the footsteps of players like as Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, and Jude Bellingham, who all excelled for Dortmund prior to drawing interest from some of the most prestigious teams in Europe.
As a result of Moukoko’s impressive play in the Bundesliga, the German national team selected the adolescent to compete in the World Cup. Moukoko made his World Cup debut in Germany’s match against Japan in the group stage.
It is possible that Moukoko will depart Borussia Dortmund without having to pay a transfer fee the following summer; hence, the German giants will contemplate selling him in January if they are unable to sign him to a new long-term deal.
It was claimed earlier this week that Chelsea were “hopeful” of signing Moukoko and were considering making a move for the extremely skilled forward in January. The move was rumored to be under consideration.
However, according to The Times, Manchester United and Liverpool are both firmly in the hunт to recruit Moukoko. These teams compete with Chelsea in the Premier League.
Because the athlete does not want to hiт a wall in his progression, he is hesitant about quitting Borussia Dortmund in the hope of advancing his career elsewhere.
However, a player who is projected to be Germany’s future starting striker would likely find it difficult to refuse a lucrative offer to move to a club that is among the most successful in the Premier League.
Before Armando Broja sustained an injury that would terminate his season, Chelsea was trying to strengthen Graham Potter’s oƭƭensive options. However, this setback could speed up Todd Boehly’s ambitions to make a trade.
Manchester United are looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo and have been linked with several players, including World Cup stars Goncalo Ramos and Cody Gakpo.
Luis Diaz is expected to miss around another three months of action for Liverpool, which would leave Jurgen Klopp’s squad thin as he works to lead the Anfield team back up the Premier League table.
At a news conference held in Germany a month ago, Moukoko addressed the growing rumors regarding his future by saying, “I feel extremely comfortable in Dortmund, and I feel the confidence of the coach.” You won’t know the outcome of my decision over whether or not to stay until the very end.

Cher Ndour is a potential target of Man Utd.
The 18-year-old player is likened to Paul Pogba 2.0 because the gameplay has many similarities with the former Red Devils star.

Cher Ndour still has not had the opportunity to participate in the first team of Benfica, but has shone in the Under-20 shirt of the Portuguese team.
