Defending English Premier League champions Manchester City are exploring the possibility of signing German youngster Yousouffa Moukoko from Borussia Dortmund.

Born in Cameroon, Youssoufa Moukoko began his football career with the German team St. Pauli. He joined his under-13 team in 2014 and scored 23 goals in 13 games for the under-15 team.

Looking at this, Borussia Dortmund soon signed this young man. He played in the Bundesliga under-17 at the age of 13. He was later promoted to U19 when he was 14. Moukoko scored six goals in his first game in the U19 Bundesliga.

Overall, he scored 141 goals in 88 games at Under-17 and Under-19 levels. Looking at the potential in him, Dortmund quickly turned him into a first-team player. Moukoko then went on an unprecedented bender. The striker became the youngest player to play in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League. He also became the youngest goalscorer in the Bundesliga. The striker won his first over in the 2021/22 season as Dortmund lifted the DFB Pokal

Now, according to a report by Football Insider, Manchester City have joined the race to sign German youngster Youssouffa Moukoko from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Under Spanish manager Pep Guardiola, Manchester City has built a great team. They have multiple quality players at each position. But that doesn’t stop them from seeking out and signing more talented youngsters.

Earlier in the season, Manchester City signed Norwegian striker Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund after paying his £51m release clause to the German team. Now they seek again to snatch another prodigy from them.

At 17 years old, Moukoko has already established himself as a very important player in the Borussia squad. The striker has scored four times and provided six assists in eighteen appearances so far. He is currently one of the highest rated young men in the world.


Moukoko’s contract with Dortmund will expire at the end of this season. It is not yet clear whether he will sign an extension deal with the German side. So it is a great opportunity for Manchester City to sign the youngster for free in the upcoming summer window.

Apart from Manchester City, clubs like Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also very interested in the youngster. So if the Citizens want to tie up the striker, they’ll have to move faster than the rest.

Earlier, Manchester City defeated Spanish club Sevilla yesterday 3-1. With this victory, City have qualified for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 as group winners. As in the UEFA Champions League, they are off to a great start in the English Premier League.

City have won nine of their first twelve games. With twenty-nine points they are currently in second place in the table. The Citizens will now face Fulham in their next game.
