United, Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly keen on Moukoko, who has scored six goals in eight starts for Dortmund this season.

And Moukoko’s agent Patrick Williams has now given that trio of clubs hope of signing the Germany star.

He told Sky Germany: “I can confirm that we are not about to conclude a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund.

“I can also assure you that the numbers that are circulating are simply not correct and Youssoufa was never offered that much.

“But we are still in contact with Dortmund and will see what the next few days bring.

“A player like Youssoufa is interesting for every top club in the world. Especially when he is free and has a future in the German national team.”

Dortmund were reported to have offered Moukoko, 18, a contract worth £85,000-a-week.

His current deal expires at the end of the season which has sparked interest from Premier League clubs.

Chelsea hope to seal a deal for Moukoko in January and are believed to have bid £8.6million to land the forward.

Barcelona are also said to be monitoring his situation and could try to snatch him on a free next summer.
