TOP STORY: Moukoko’s murky Dortmund status amid Chelsea interest

Youssoufa Moukoko has yet to sign an extension at Borussia Dortmund as interest from other big clubs like Chelsea continue to swirl around the 18-year-old striker.

There have previously been reports that Dortmund offered the Germany international a salary between €5-6 million a year to renew, but this has now been disputed.

Speaking to Sky Sport Deutschland, Moukoko’s agent Patrick Williams said: « I can confirm that we are not yet about to sign a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund. I can also assure you that the numbers that are circulating are simply not correct and Youssoufa was never offered that way. But we are still in contact with Borussia Dortmund and will see what the next few days bring. »

The striker would like to stay with the Bundesliga club as he feels comfortable there, but he also wants clarity over his future and to play for a club that believes in him, offering him a competitive contract.

Sky’s Marc Behrenbeck has stated that Chelsea are the closest when it comes to signing Moukoko away from Germany, although Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona and Newcastle United are making efforts of their own.

While he didn’t directly respond to those links, Williams stated: « Be sure: we do our job! A player like Youssoufa is interesting for all top clubs in the world. Especially when he is free of charge and has a future in the German national team. »
