Liverpool and Manchester United told January price for teenage sensation

He is averaging a goal contribution every 76 minutes this season


Liverpool and Manchester United have both been told it will take just £26.2m to prise teenage sensation Youssofo Moukoko away from Borussia Dortmund this summer amid fears that he won’t sign a new deal at Signal Iduna Park.

Open in new window

The 17-year-old, who has been called up to the German national team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, is out of contract in 2023, and there is speculation that he could opt to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

So far, he has managed six goals and four assists in 14 Bundesliga outings in the absence of Erling Haaland, and has gone some way to filling the massive hole left by the now Manchester City striker.

And his form has led to interest across Europe, with Liverpool and Manchester United apparently leading the interest from English parties, while Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona are all also sniffing around the teenage sensation.

According to German outlet Bild [via the Mirror], Dortmund are ready to sell in January, and the German side are looking for a fee of just £26.2m (30m euros).

The Red Devils are on the hunt for a new striker, with Cristiano Ronaldo out of favour under Erik ten Hag and out of contract in the summer. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial has been plagued by injuries this season, and has managed just four Premier League appearances.

Liverpool too are looking to freshen up their frontline, though the expensive addition of Darwin Nunez, as well as the signing of Luis Diaz last January, has gone some way to achieving this.

Should such a talent be available at a cut price in January however, they will be in the mix for his signature.
