Chelsea in talks with the Champions League star striker to join Stamford Bridge

Youssoufa Moukoko of Borussia Dortmund and Germany is currently in “constant conversations” with Chelsea about joining Graham Potter’s team at Stamford Scaffold, according to CBS columnist Ben Jacobs for GiveMeSport.
In January, the 18-year-old diva will enter the final six months of his contract with the Bundesliga team.

Transfer updates for Chelsea Youssoufa Moukoko Jacobs recently told GiveMeSport that Chelsea is leading the competition for the striker’s services because he “fits their shape flawlessly.”
The double cross Germany international might be acquired for £26.2 million this January, according to German newspaper Bild in November (via The Mirror), with Bundesliga giants not wanting to lose their young celebrity for no reason the following summer.

However, the Blues are currently in need of more depth in the middle forward position after Armando Broja suffered a season-ending injury in a victory over Aston Manor this month. The eight-time Champions League star is likely to be given the chance to compete with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the starting position.

Additionally, Jacobs acknowledges that Chelsea will be considering a deal for Moukoko, but he also acknowledges that they need determine whether the striker will use their advantage as leverage for another deal with Dortmund.

Does what Jacobs mentioned about Moukoko and Chelsea hold true?
“Chelsea’s preference has always been to work with the player side to try to inspire him to agree to a summer move and then their expectation, in this way, is that he won’t sign another arrangement and they’ll get him on a free transfer, which is practical and they get a youthful ability,” Jacobs said in an interview with GiveMeSport.

“However, given Armando Broja’s physical condition, it’s possible that Chelsea needs to intensify the situation and bring in Moukoko first. These talks are developing.

It’s kind of a cat-and-mouse game because if Chelsea starts the cycle and decides they can sign the player in January without breaking the bank, Dortmund uses that as influence, Moukoko uses that as a trade, and then halfway through that time signs another agreement, Chelsea pursues them and they’re used in a game.

“Moukoko might end up with a better arrangement as a result, but she wouldn’t want to leave for the remainder of the year. The only thing Chelsea will understand is this.

Could Chelsea make a good acquisition in Moukoko?
Moukoko would fit Chelsea’s flow strategy of signing perhaps the best young talent the globe has to offer right now and comes with strong insight right now after experiencing a delayed stint in the Dortmund senior team.

According to Transfermarkt, the Yaoundé-born forward has played for the Bundesliga team, scoring 11 goals and providing eight assists during that time, indicating that despite his youth, he is already demonstrating the potential to develop into a top-tier attacker.

A normal WhoScored rating of 6.88 places the German as the team’s joint-fifth-best performer so far this season in the ups and downs of the Bundesliga, showing how he can handle improvement despite still being in the early stages of his football career.

Therefore, Moukoko might just be the striker Potter considers as his long-term solution for the middle forward position at Stamford Extension.
