Youssufa Moukoko has denied that he has rejected a new deal from Borussia Dortmund amid interest from Chelsea.
The forward, who has six goals and four assists in 14 league games so far this campaign, will be a free agent at the end of the season.
The Blues are reportedly interested in bringing the 18 year old Germany international to Stamford Bridge in January.
While some reports claim he is close to agreeing a new deal with Dortmund others claim he has rejected a huge new deal that would have seen his wages skyrocket into six figures.
Last week, his agent sought to clarify the situation, saying that while they were not near completing a new deal for the player, he certainly had not rejected, nor had even been offered, the reported salary worth £115,000-a-week.
Now, Moukoko himself has spoken out on the matter, reiterating his commitment to Dortmund for the rest of the campaign.
“I will never accept such a lie and I’m still shocked – it’s a shame,” Moukoko said when discussing the stories that he turned down a new deal worth around €6million-a-year.
“My full focus is on the second half of the season with Borussia Dortmund. I will never be bigger than the club.”
