'Ready to push': Romano shares update on 'amazing' reported Spurs target likened to Aguero

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are just two of the clubs currently linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Youssoufa Moukoko.

In November, 90Min claimed Spurs sent scouts to watch the 18-year-old in action against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga.

More recently, the same outlet said the Gunners are amongst the clubs to have been informed that Moukoko wants to leave Dortmund next year.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has provided a fresh update on the young German’s future.

The transfer insider took to Twitter to claim that BVB still have chances to extend Moukoko’s contract.

This is because he has a good relationship with the club hierarchy.

Nonetheless, “timing is crucial”, and Dortmund “have to act within December” with a good proposal.

And in case they can’t agree a deal, English and Spanish clubs will be “ready to push” in January.

Lionel Messi 2.0?

Moukoko has established himself as one of the most exciting talents in world football.

He made his senior debut at the earliest possible opportunity, coming on just after his 16th birthday.

Moukoko replaced Erling Haaland against Hertha Berlin in November 2020.

And he has now cemented his spot as a regular in the Dortmund side.

Moukoko has six goals and four assists in the Bundesliga this season, and made the Germany squad for the World Cup.

He is a player Haaland described as the biggest talent in world football. The Norwegian suggested that he is an ‘amazing‘ prospect.

And the Bundesliga website has compared Moukoko to none other than Lionel Messi.

On Twitter, fans have compared the teenager to Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero.

90min notes that Moukoko’s contract at Westfalenstadion expires in 2023.

And as well as Tottenham and Arsenal, there is reportedly interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool.
