Liverpool receive huge blow in hunt for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielderPublished November 17, 2016
Liverpool have received a huge blow in their hunt for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud. Jurgen Klopp had the 20-year-old high on his list of transfer targets. But unfortunately for the Reds, it looks as though he’ll be staying in Germany for a few more months yet after comments by the club’s sporting director in an interview with Kicker.
Max Eberl shot down any chance of a winter move when he said: “There is a zero percent chance that Mahmoud will leave in January. There is no offer for him on the table from any club and we have not had any offers for him in the past either.
“It is the club’s desire to extend his contract. We have not opened talks yet, but that will soon happen. We will have to consider our options if he only has one year left on his contract next year, but that is pure speculation at this stage.”
The relationship between the club and the player has been fractious as the former tries to convince Dahoud to sign a new deal. His current deal will expire in 2018. If he hasn’t put pen to paper by the summer then Eberl might change his tune with Europe’s biggest clubs tracking the starlet.
