"We are not" - Agent drops huge update on 'incredible' Liverpool target as Reds plot move for wonderkid

"We are not" - Agent drops huge update on 'incredible' Liverpool target as Reds plot move for wonderkid

The agent of Youssoufa Moukoko has given an update on the Liverpool target's contract status.

The agent of Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko has given an update on the forward's contract status as clubs, including Liverpool, target his signing.

Moukoko is considered one of the top young players in the world, and has broken into the Borussia Dortmund first team this season.

He has scored six goals and provided three assists in 14 league games this season, and has become the first choice striker for the German side.

That resulted in a call-up to the Germany national team for the World Cup, where Moukoko became the youngest player ever to represent his nation at the tournament.

He will now return to club action at Dortmund, with doubts over his future. His current deal expires in the summer, with Spanish outlet Sport claiming last week that Chelsea had bid €10 million in an attempt to sign him ahead of Barcelona.

Liverpool are also said to be interested in the player, but Dortmund are keen to renew his deal to keep him at Signal Iduna Park for years to come.

An update from the player's agent, however, may not fill the German side with increasing hope.

Speaking to Sky Germany (via Liverpool Echo), Moukoko's agent explained: "I can confirm that we are not about to conclude a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund.

"I can also assure you that the numbers that are circulating are simply not correct, and Youssoufa was never offered that much. But we are still in contact with Dortmund, and will see what the next few days bring."

Moukoko can reach a pre-contract agreement with European clubs in January, hence Dortmund's desperation to commit the player to new terms.

But for a player described as 'incredible' by the official Bundesliga website earlier this year, it appears that Dortmund may have to step up their efforts even further.

The 18-year-old does, however, want to start games if he does move clubs - something that Liverpool would have to offer him were they to place an official bid for his services.
