Chelsea are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund star Youssoufa Moukoko in January, with the teenager’s current contract up in 2023.
The teenager was part of Germany’s World Cup squad and is also attracting interest from Manchester United, Liverpool and Barcelona.
His agent recently denied claims over a new contract with Dortmund being agreed and according to Ben Jacobs, Chelsea are in the lead for his signature.
“Chelsea are the frontrunners at the moment and he fits their mould absolutely perfectly,” Jacobs told GiveMeSport.
“I think that is why they’re very seriously entertaining that particular signing and we know from Moukoko’s agent that he hasn’t yet and isn’t close to signing a new deal at Dortmund.
“This is a very interesting scenario because, from Dortmund’s point of view, they’ll want him to sign in January and that will rule out a January move.”
