Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are readying a £25 million bid for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud, according to Bild (via talkSPORT).
The 20-year-old has been in excellent form ever since he made his debut for the German side in 2014, and has since made 53 appearances for the club in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
However, it was last season in particular where Dahoud began to make a name for himself by netting five times in the league to help Monchengladbach to a brilliant fourth place finish in the Bundesliga, in turn qualifying for the Champions League.
The highly-rated midfielder has been a regular feature in the side this time around as well, and played an hour in the 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Wednesday night – his eleventh appearance of the campaign.
Unsurprisingly, the Germany Under-21 international’s fine form has attracted the attention of many top European clubs, but it looks like it’ll be Klopp’s Liverpool that make the first move.
It has been reported that Dahoud has yet to sign a contract extension at Monchengladbach, which could suggest that he’s open to a move away from the German side, and a £25 million bid would seriously test the German’s side resolve.
Question marks over Dahoud’s commitment to the club is only going to intensify speculation surrounding his future and, with Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham also believed to be interested, the Reds will have to act fast to get their man.
