Arsenal are reportedly showing interest in signing Youssoufa Moukoko in the January transfer window. The German striker currently plays for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

However, his contract is going to expire in the next summer transfer window. Therefore, a number of European sides and Premier League sides are showing interest in the young and talented striker.


According to reports, Arsenal are showing interest in signing German striker Youssoufa Moukoko. The report also claims that he is ready to leave Borussia Dortmund in the 2023 summer transfer window. Hence, the agent of the striker has invited many top European and Premier League clubs to bid for him. However, it looks like the Gunners do not want to wait for the 2023 summer transfer window. They want him to sign in the January transfer window.

However, it will not be an easy task for Edu Gaspar to do the negotiations. This is because Dortmund wants him to sign a contract. Another problem is Arsenal are not the only team interested. Their arch-rivals Tottenham and other top European clubs are also ready to fight for his signature. Therefore, the striker needs to be convinced of the long-term project. The Gunners also need to promise a good amount of game time to develop his career.


This potential signing of Moukoko would be another brilliant statement of winning intent by the Gunners. However, this would also potentially affect the long-term future of Florian Balogun and Eddie Nketiah. Many expected Mikel Arteta to start Eddie Nketiah after the injury to Gabriel Jesus. A number of fans also taught that the Gunners would recall the in-form Florian Balogun from his loan spell. However, it looks like Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new striker in the January transfer window.

Hence, the potential signing of Youssoufa Moukoko would raise the question of long-term plans for Eddie Nketiah. Eddie Nketiah signed a new long-term in the summer. Hence, it looks like Eddie Nketiah will continue to be a backup striker. Whereas, Florian Balogun will continue to go on a loan spell next season to continue his development. Youssoufa Moukoko is a very dangerous striker. He has scored goals this season. The German striker was also praised for his goal-scoring form by Erling Haaland.

Hence, Arsenal will need to make a decision on the striker situation in the January transfer window. Many Arsenals have said that Arteta should trust the ability of Eddie Nketiah. However, football pundits have made it clear that Nketiah is not the striker to win the Premier League. Tottenham will also target Moukoko as a backup striker and long-term replacement for Harry Kane.
