Dortmund faces prospect of losing young Germany star Moukoko

BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Dortmund faces the prospect of losing one of the most promising young forwards in Europe for nothing if the club can’t convince Youssoufa Moukoko to sign a new deal. The 18-year-old Germany striker’s contract is up at the end of the season and Dortmund’s efforts to extend it have so far failed to yield agreement. Moukoko and his agent have been able to negotiate with other clubs since Jan. 1 without needing to notify Dortmund as he’s in the final six months of his contract. Chelsea and Barcelona are reportedly interested. Moukoko is Dortmund’s top scorer in the Bundesliga this season.
