LIVERPOOL will face competition in their pursuit of signing Youssoufa Moukoko, according to reports.
The Borussia Dortmund starlet, 17, is being tracked by a host of top clubs.
But The Reds are the best positioned to land him, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
They report this despite interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, and from Paris Saint-Germain.
Jurgen Klopp's interest in the attacker is said to be quite acute, with him being impressed by his younger compatriot's performances.
While he has mostly appeared off the bench for his club this season, Moukoko has still returned a stellar goal record.
