15-Year Old Wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko Set To Be Brought Into Dortmund First-Team

15-Year Old Wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko Set To Be Brought Into Dortmund First-Team

15-year old wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko is poised to be in the Borussia Dortmund first-team after dominating the youth ranks.

Signed from St Pauli in 2016, Moukoko netted 33 goals in 21 matches in the 2017/18 season for the Under 15's BVB side and then, aged 12, made the step up to the Bundesliga outfit's Under 17 team, where he continued to go goal-crazy by notching a record-setting 50 goals in 28 games.

He then marked his graduation to the Under 19's by bagging six on his debut en route to a sensational tally of 31 goals in 18 games this term.

Moukoko has since been drafted into the Germany Under 19's fold and the youngest ever UEFA Youth League goalscorer looks set to get his chance in the first-team before the season is done and dusted, as per manager Lucien Favre.

Dortmund are believed to have tied him down until 2022, while German outlet Ruhr Nachrichten claim the starlet has already secured himself a $1 million Nike deal and received a seven-figure upfront.

Fourteen-Year-Old Youssoufa Moukoko Becomes The Youngest UEFA Youth League Scorer

Moukoko idolises Lionel Messi, who sent him a special gift for his 15th birthday back in November, and he wants to emulate the Argentine and win the Ballon d'Or.

"If I'm honest, my goal is to become a professional in Dortmund, to get the Champions League with Borussia and to win the Ballon d'Or (World Player Award)," he said to Sport Bild.

In the past, the age of Moukoko has come into question, with a Dortmund coach casting doubt on whether he is older than his birth certificate.

BVB youth coordinator Lars Ricken defended the youngster in 2017, however, and his father, Joseph, refuted the claims.

"Right after his birth, I registered him with the German consulate in Yaounde [Cameroon's capital]," he said to the official Dortmund website, via ESPN.

"The boy can't be older because his mum, Marie, is only 28."

The thought of Moukoko being thrust into a youthful attack featuring the special talents of Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho and Gio Reyna is incredibly exciting.

Remember the name.
