Youssoufa Moukoko's agent, Patrick Williams, has questioned whether the 17-year-old wonderkid will commit his long-term future to Borussia Dortmund.
"It's not a foregone conclusion that Youssoufa will sign a contract extension with BVB," Williams told Bild.
The German tabloid claims the youngster has attracted interest from England and Spain.
"Of course, many clubs are interested in Youssoufa, that's no secret. His contract expires in the summer of 2023, which is getting closer, and the top clubs have that on their minds," he added.
In November 2020, Youssoufa Moukoko became the youngest player ever to appear in the Bundesliga at the age of 16 years and one day.
Around four weeks later, Moukoko scored his first goal in the German top flight, and the striker went on to make 14 appearances with three goals to his name last term before suffering a season-ending ligament injury.
Injuries have since continued to haunt the 17-year-old, and he has been limited to just 104 minutes of Bundesliga football this season. According to Williams, Moukoko needs more playing time to continue his development.
"Yes, he has been set back a bit by injuries time and again this season. Yes, of course the competition at BVB is great. But he hardly gets the playing time he needs at the current stage of his career at Dortmund. So of course we're thinking about what's best for the future," said the agent.
