Borussia Dortmund set to promote Youssoufa Moukoko to the first-team

Derby U19 v Borussia Dortmund U19 - UEFA Youth League Play-Offs

Borussia Dortmund have a wonderkid of a striker on their books, who has scored a ridiculous amount of goals this season and is surely destined for greatness.

No, we’re not talking about Erling Haaland.

We are, in fact, talking about 15-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko.

You’ve probably heard of him before. Moukoko has made headlines for his quite ridiculous goalscoring record for various Dortmund youth sides.

In the 2017/18 season, he scored 37 goals in 25 matches for the Under 17’s - when he was just 13-years-old! The following season, he beat that record with 46 goals in 25 matches.

This season, the 15-year-old has been promoted to the Under 19 side and has notched 31 goals in 18 appearances.

He really is a freak of nature.

He made his Germany Under 16 debut when he was 12-years-old and he is also the youngster-ever scorer in the UEFA Youth League.

He’s now been called up to Germany's Under 19 squad and has attracted the attention of Dortmund manager, Lucien Favre.

In fact, it seems like it’s just a matter of time before he’s called up to the first-team.

“We had a plan with him, but I can’t say exactly when he’ll be with us. Maybe in March, but we still have to wait for a few things,” Favre said.

Can you imagine 15-year-old Moukoko and 18-year-old Haaland upfront together next season!?

Moukoko’s 31 goals in 18 appearances is almost matched by Haaland’s 40 goals in 30 games for Red Bull Salzburg and Dortmund.


And if 19-year-old Jadon Sancho wants to hang around at the Westfalenstadion, Dortmund could have the front talented front-three in world football in the next few years.

When they do eventually have to sell the trio, they're going to get three very handsome transfer fees!
