Sport Bild reports that the future of Youssoufa Moukoko is becoming increasingly doubtful at Borussia Dortmund due to the type of striker Edin Terzic likes to play.
Terzic prefers to use a classic type of striker that is good in the air, which is why he has preferred to use Niclas Füllkrug and Sébastien Haller as of late.
A departure in the winter for Moukoko is not out of the question, with clubs such as 1.FC Köln interested in loaning the striker but Dortmund would prefer to sell the 18-year-old meaning they could then immediately invest in a successor. However, Haller is expected to be involved in the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast which means that Moukoko will be needed to play as a backup to Füllkrug.
So far, Moukoko has played six times for Dortmund this season with all of his appearances coming off of the bench and his sole goal coming in a DFB-Pokal game against Regionalliga SüdWest side Schott Mainz.
It was only this time last year when the 20-year-old was leading the line for Dortmund as Haller recovered from his cancer treatment.
