Reported Liverpool target Dahoud ‘going nowhere’

There is a “zero per cent chance” of Mahmoud Dahoud leaving Borussia Moenchengladbach in January, according to the club’s sporting director Max Eberl.

Liverpool have been linked heavily with the midfielder and German outlet Die Express has recently reported that the Reds could make a £26million bid in the winter transfer window.

Dahoud scored five goals and assisted nine last season in his breakthrough campaign, but he has failed to get on the scoresheet so far this term.

Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are also understood to be monitoring the player but Eberl says there isn’t a chance that Dahoud will be leaving this winter.

“There is a zero per cent chance that Mahmoud will leave in January,” Eberl told Kicker.

“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.”

Eberl is keen to extend Dahoud’s contract at the club with only two years remaining on his current deal.

“It is the club’s desire to extend his contract,” he said. “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.”
