Liverpool’s hopes of landing top target Mahmoud Dahoud have taken a hit as Borussia Dortmund are considering a £12.8m swap deal for the midfielder, according to German outlet, Bild.
The Germany U21 international was the subject of great interest from Reds manager Jurgen Klopp over the summer but nevertheless remained in the Bundesliga.
The Merseyside club are reportedly preparing a fresh offer worth £26m for the 20-year-old however, Klopp’s former club want in and have an offer of their own.
The German side are supposedly ready to offer their league rivals £12.8m as well as former Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin as part of the deal.
Sahin made 12 appearances during his time on loan at Liverpool from Real Madrid before joining Klopp’s Dortmund side from the Spanish giants, initially on loan before making the move permanent.
However, the Turkey international has made just one appearance this season, in the German Cup. On the other hand, the Gladbach midfielder has made ten appearances thus far, including two in the Champions League.
