Youssoufa Moukoko’s quick progress at Borussia Dortmund hasn’t gone unnoticed and several clubs across Europe have had their eyes set on acquiring the services of the rising German teenager.

Moukoko’s contractual situation has actually given top European clubs the nod to start their pursuit of the striker since the youngster’s contract expires in the summer and BVB have found it hard to reach an agreement with the player’s agent.

Barcelona have been among the clubs linked to the BVB striker with the aim of finding a long-time replacement for star striker Robert Lewandowski and now credible journalist Ben Jacobs claims that Chelsea have overtaken them alongside Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspurs in the race to sign Moukoko.

Chelsea are in dire need of a striker in January to reinforce their attack, especially with Armando Broja out with an injury and with BVB actually willing to sell Moukoko in January if he doesn’t agree on a contract renewal and then Chelsea could have a chance to agree on a deal with the German team.

Barcelona and the other English clubs are only willing to sign the striker as a free agent in the summer and thus Chelsea could have a clear opportunity for the youngster if they bid for him in January.

Moukoko will have top teams fighting for him and we can only wait and see which team he joins either in winter or in the summer.
