Liverpool retain interest in £25m-rated Dahoud

Liverpool remain interested in signing Mahmoud Dahoud, despite failing with a £25million bid this summer.

The Reds signed six players for a combined fee of almost £70m, but they failed in their attempts to prise Dahoud from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bundesliga side were reluctant to lose another key asset after selling Granit Xhaka to Arsenal, but could be open to negotiations going forward.

According to Die Express, Liverpool will send scouts to watch the attacking midfielder on Tuesday, as he plays for Germany U21s against Finland.

Liverpool offered £25m to sign Dahoud in the summer, but Gladbach resisted interest both from Anfield and from Borussia Dortmund.

But both sides remain keen to sign the 20-year-old, and could vie for his signature either in the winter or next summer.

Tony Barrett, writing for JOE, reveals more on Liverpool’s failed summer pursuit. He writes:

‘Mahmoud Dahoud had won Klopp’s admiration as a result of his performances in the Bundesliga and the Liverpool manager had wanted to add him to his midfield options at Anfield.

‘His interest, though, was thwarted by Borussia Monchengladbach who refused to countenance Dahoud’s sale during a summer in which they had already lost Granit Xhaka to Arsenal.

‘But all that has done is delay the 20-year-old’s departure, particularly as he has now entered the final the final two years of his contract. Given they have spent much of this summer in talks with his agent, Reza Fazeli, over a new contract for Emre Can, whom he also represents, Liverpool remain in the box seat to sign Dahoud in the future.’
