Sources: Door opens for Liverpool to sign Youssoufa Moukoko as deal agreed next month
Borussia Dortmund sensation Youssoufa Moukoko has agreed to join an England-based agency next month in a huge boost to Liverpool and his Premier League suitors, sources have told Football Insider.
The in-demand striker, 17, has a deal in place to link up with Unique Sports Management when he turns 18 on 20 November.
That will pave the way for Moukoko to join a Premier League club next year, as interest in him hots up among the big-spending elite.
USM, whose star clients include Reece James and Anthony Gordon, have a firm plan in place for the wonderkid, who is regarded as one of the world’s hottest young talents.
Football Insider first revealed (21 October) that Liverpool are interested in signing Moukoko after being hugely impressed by the impact he has made at Dortmund.
The Merseyside giants are among the elite clubs keen to lure Moukoko from the German club next year.

Premier League rivals, as well as Paris Saint-Germain Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, are also monitoring the young forward, who is regarded as one of the world’s elite young talents.
Jurgen Klopp is believed to have been blown away by the impact Moukoko has made at his former club Dortmund since breaking into the team a day after his 16th birthday.
He became the youngest player in Bundesliga history when he replaced Erling Haaland as a late substitute on 21 November, 2020.
Moukoko has continued to develop quickly and has already accumulated 54 appearances for Dortmund, where he is firmly established as a regular starter.
Operating in the centre-forward role, he started and played 82 minutes of Tuesday’s 0-0 Champions League draw against Man City.
Moukoko has made 17 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring four goals – all in the Bundesliga – and supplying five assists.
