Liverpool and Manchester United have joined the race for Borussia Dortmund starlet Youssoufa Moukoko, according to The Times.
The Athletic recently claimed that Chelsea are looking into the possibility of signing the 18-year-old – maybe even already in January – and Liverpool and Manchester United are now said to be interested too.
However, Dortmund are still hopeful of extending Moukoko contract, which expires at the end of the season, and the three Premier League clubs need to convince the striker that he will not be signed to sit on the bench to lure him away from Signal Iduna Park.
Asked about the possibility of extending with Dortmund, Moukoko told RND last month:
“I would like to know exactly what the club has in mind for my future. I want to develop further and without games I just can’t develop further, because I don’t want my development to stop again. I think that’s quite normal, because perspective is important to me.”
The highly-rated striker has racked up six goals and four assists in 14 Bundesliga games this season.
