Chelsea enters the market for Youssoufa Moukoko, a young Germany and Borussia Dortmund player.
Chelsea has entered the fray and has begun speaking with the agents of Borussia Dortmund and Germany attacker Youssoufa Moukoko about a potential transfer.
The just turned 18-year-old played for the German team in the World Cup, which was an abject failure. He waited on the bench for the other group games before boarding a trip back to Germany, entering the game against Japan only for the final few minutes.
Moukoko has made a spectacular ascent through Dortmund’s ranks in recent years. The completion of this season marks the expiration of his contract with the Bundesliga team.
Chelsea will be able to do that as of January 1. They may also consider offering the forward a five-year contract with a sixth-year option. It is pretty comparable to the most recent six-year contract extensions for Reece James and Armando Broja.
While playing for Dortmund in the early half of this season, Moukoko was in fantastic shape. In 22 games across all competitions, he has six goals scored and six goals assisted. He is primarily a centre-forward but can play the right wing if necessary. He could be a valuable asset to the club.
