Dortmund ‘facing battle’ to keep teenage Liverpool target

Borussia Dortmund face a battle to retain the services of Youssoufa Moukoko and many clubs are increasingly confident that they can sign him at the end of the season.

Several teams, including Liverpool, are monitoring the situation of the German international with him impressing for the Bundesliga side this term and currently representing his nation at the World Cup in Qatar.

The report, courtesy of 90min’s Graeme Bailey, also claims that the 18-year-old has yet to decide where his future lies despite being out of contract at the end of the season.

Eden Terzic’s team are, of course, hoping that he will remain at Signal Iduna Park after the summer, but Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester United join Jurgen Klopp’s team in capturing the teenager’s signature.

Recently, at a press conference for the national team, Manuel Neuer told Moukoko to join Bayern.

He has six goals and six assists in 22 appearances for his team this term (in all competitions) and is playing like a seasoned pro, despite his tender age.

Strengthening the midfield is at the forefront of Liverpool’s plans, but if the opportunity arises to sign such an exciting prospect as the Dortmund star, then we should certainly be interested.

Dortmund also faces a real challenge in retaining the services of Jude Bellingham with many of Europe’s top clubs following his progress – Liverpool have reportedly made the England international a ‘priority’.
