Borussia Dortmund is apparently still trying hard to keep top talent in the long term Youssoufa Moukoko. According to information from WAZ The 17-year-old attacker should have a long-term contract ready to be signed. A timely signature of the 17-year-old attacker is not to be expected, it is said. Moukoko first wants to wait and see how his situation at the district club develops.
Moukoko still has a contract with Borussia until the summer of 2023. If he doesn’t extend it in Dortmund, he could switch after the upcoming season on a free transfer. In the event of an extension, however, there is also speculation about a possible loan that could give the teenager regular game practice – for example with an ambitious second division club.
Due to the tumor disease and the associated absence of new signing Sébastien Haller, which is expected to last for months, Moukoko could also be used much more regularly in Dortmund in the coming weeks than in the previous season, in which the 17-year-old was through several protracted injuries had been thrown back. Moukoko’s agent Patrick Williams already had a contract extension with BVB in early 2022 “not a self-starter” designated.
Born in Cameroon’s capital Yaoundé, Moukoko switched from the youth team at FC St. Pauli to the youth team at BVB in 2016, where he set goal record after goal record. He often played with much older teammates. In November 2020, one day after his 16th birthday, under the then Dortmund coach Lucien Favre, he was promoted to youngest professional ever used in the Bundesliga, when Favre substituted him in the away game at Hertha BSC. So far, Moukoko has played 30 Bundesliga games (five goals).
