According to reports, Chelsea and Liverpool are on alert for Borussia Dortmund striker Youssoufa Moukoko.

The Germany international is a favourite of both Premier League giants, and could be made available by BVB in January.

Moukoko’s future is uncertain given BVB coach Edin Terzic prefers to play with a classic No. 9 in the guise of Niclas Füllkrug or Sébastien Haller, BILD reports.

As such, it is not out of the question that Moukoko can leave Dortmund as early as January.

Bundesliga rivals FC Köln are said to be keen on loaning the 18-year-old for the rest of the season. However, if Moukoko is to leave, Dortmund would prefer to sell  in order to sign a new striker.

Chelsea and Liverpool are both monitoring developments closely, reports claim.
