Liverpool transfer target speaks out on contract negotiations

The Reds have been linked with the soon-to-be out of contract star in recent weeks


Borussia Dortmund have been handed a massive boost as teenage sensation Youssof Moukoko has revealed his desire to remain with them despite interest from across Europe in the soon-to-be free agent.

The 17-year-old, who became Germany’s youngest-ever World Cup debutant when he came on in their 2-1 defeat to Japan on matchday 1, 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.

However, they have been dealt a major blow in their pursuit of the star as he has re-iterated his desire to remain with Dortmund for the foreseeable future, despite his contract situation at present.

“I feel so comfortable at BVB, I love the club. I’d really love to stay at Borussia Dortmund”, he explained.

“I want to understand what kind of project and perspective the club will offer me, it’s an important point”

It means that the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United will have to look elsewhere to reinforce their frontlines in the coming months, with the Red Devils reportedly casting admiring glances at PSV forward Cody Gakpo as they look to find a replacement for the now-free agent Cristiano Ronaldo.
