The working paper of the former BVB child prodigy Youssoufa Moukoko expires next year. After things had gone quiet around the 17-year-old in the last few months, the new/old coach Edin Terzic has now turned things around. But does that change anything about the contract situation of the attacker?
Marco Rose is history at Borussia Dortmund, hopefully Youssoufa Moukoko’s many injuries too. The young centre-forward can finally play his way back into the center of attention he previously had in the youth departments due to his outstanding performance.
But the now 17-year-old hasn’t had it that easy with the pros in the past few months. Former coach Rose was not always able to relate to the young U21 international, and Moukoko was repeatedly thrown back by ligament and muscle injuries. In the new season, that should all be different.
As “Sky” reports, Moukoko has played in the focus of coach Terzic. Accordingly, the offensive player impressed the returning trainer in the first few days, the teenager is always full throttle, observers have recognized.
In the past season it was different under Rose. Because a number of injuries threw him back, Moukoko missed eleven Bundesliga games alone and could hardly recommend himself in training.
So it’s hardly surprising that both BVB and Moukoko were initially cautious about the future. According to “Sky”, that should now change.
BVB and Moukoko have no deadline
The Dortmunders want to extend the top talent anyway, sports director Sebastian Kehl is already planning in the background and regulates the modalities, it is said. Because the club sees Moukoko, who made his Bundesliga debut at the end of November 2020 at the age of 16, as a long-term regular. In addition, you do not want to move the highly talented 17-year-old, whose contract ends in summer 2023, on a free transfer.
According to the report, Moukoko can also imagine staying, but wants to wait and see what role he will have after the departure of Erling Haaland and the upcoming transfer of Sébastien Haller, who comes from Ajax Amsterdam.
According to “Sky” information, there is still no deadline by when the Moukoko side and the Borussia bosses want a decision on future poker. Exact numbers should not have been an issue with a view to a possible new contract anyway.
Both sides still have some time. The current transfer window doesn’t close until September 1 at 6 p.m. By this time at the latest, it should and should be clear whether Moukoko, who switched to the Dortmund youth team in 2016, will remain part of BVB.
