13-Year Old Wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko's Record This Season Is Insane

13-Year Old Wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko's Record This Season Is Insane

You'll probably want to make of a note of Borussia Dortmund's 13-year old wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko because he could well be one to watch out for.

The young prodigy hit headlines in August 2017 when he made the step up to the Bundesliga Under 17, playing against kids much older than him.

Watch Moukoko's ridiculous four-goal haul against Viktoria Koln:

But he did so with distinction, marking his debut at Under 17 level by bagging a brace in the first game of the season against SG Unterrath as his side ran out 3-0 winners.

He well and truly set the bar in his first game at a higher level, but has replicated his heroics in games that followed in what has been an insane campaign so far.

In 15 games for the Dortmund Under 17's, he's netted an absurd 27 goals and also chipped in with four assists. To make you feel very old, the kid was born in 2004 and he's tearing it up!

Signed from St Pauli in 2016, Moukoko netted 33 goals in 21 matches in a single season for the Under 15's BVB side and his progression sees him having a bagful of goals for the Under 17's despite being four years junior.

Dortmund have a great track record with young players in recent times and it's no surprise that the club think he has the ability to join an esteemed list that includes the likes of Mario Gotze, Christian Pulisic, Nuri Sahin and Felix Passlack.

The age of the Cameroon-born striker has come into question, with some deeming him to be older than his birth certificate - something his father, Joseph, refutes.

"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."
