The World Cup winner is aware of the 15-year-old star who has dazzled his goals in the German Youth League.
Youssoufa Moukoko, Borussia Dortmund’s teenage sensation praised as an outstanding talent that is rare to witness by Germany coach Joachim Low.
With 40 goals in 23 league matches since the start of last season, the Cameroon-born forward has been prolific in front of goal for the Dortmund U19 side.
In BVB’s Uefa Champions League squad and their Bundesliga set-up this season Moukoko, 15, has been named, but he is not eligible to make his first-team debut until he turns 16 on November 20.
“I haven’t seen Moukoko live yet, but I got in touch with his coaches and spoke to former Dortmund U19 head coach Michael Skibbe, and I have also watched a couple of videos,” Low told the Bundesliga website.
“It’s almost hard to believe that someone at that age can score so many goals in a U19 league against players two or three years older than him.”
“He has a talent which you don’t come across that often, especially since age always plays a role in the youth teams. It’s difficult if you’re two years younger and you always have to keep an eye on how players develop, but Moukoko has been outstanding in the youth teams so far.”
Earlier this week, as a long-standing successor to Lionel Messi, four-time African Footballer of the Year, Samuel Eto’o tapped Moukoko.
