SportBild claim that Jürgen Klopp is prepared to bid €30 million for Mo Dahoud.
Liverpool have been keen on signing Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mahmoud Dahoud since the transfer window opened and it could be that the Reds will get their man yet.
The Bundesliga side’s star has refused a contract renewal fuelling claims that he wants a move away from Gladbach. If he does stay he would a have a great opportunity to cement his place in the Gladbach team and become the star of the side after Granit Xhaka departed for Arsenal this summer.
The reason a bid for Dahoud could prove successful is that the German would be available next season for €10 million if he chose to remain at the club but maintains his stand on not signing a new contract. The release clause will only kick in next summer so Liverpool could prey on Gladbach’s vulnerability and Dahoud’s apparent desire to leave.
SportBild claim that Klopp is ready to test Gladbach’s resolve with a bid worth around thirty million Euros. There is mass uncertainty surrounding whether or not Klopp will delve into the transfer market again.
“Is the activity all over? I have no idea. I don’t think so. We will see what happens,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“If the Roma game was our base then we have to change everything but it isn’t.
“Was the Milan game more our base? Maybe. But Roma? No.
“Gomez, Sakho and Lucas [Leiva] are all injured so of course we haven’t got enough centre-backs at the moment. But we have to handle situations.
“There have been too many games with not enough centre-backs.
“We can’t sign someone just for a few weeks. In other positions we do have cover.”
If he does make any more moves in the market a left back is far more important at this point than a central midfielder.
