Chelsea are lining up a move for Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko, according to The Athletic.
Although a deal is far from done, “other Premier League clubs are under the impression it is advanced” between Chelsea and the 18-year-old striker, per the report.

Moukoko is out of contract at Dortmund at the end of the season, at which point he could join Chelsea free of charge. But it is claimed that Chelsea may “find a way” to bring the striker to London next month if they manage to convince him of a move.

Dortmund, however, remain hopeful of extending Moukoko’s contract.

18-year-old Moukoko has scored six goals in 14 Bundesliga games this season.
