Liverpool’s hopes of landing top target Mahmoud Dahoud have taken a hit as Borussia Dortmund are considering a £12.8m swap deal for the midfielder, according to German outlet, Bild.
Borussia Dortmund are planning to use Nuri Sahin to scupper Liverpool’s plans to sign Mahmoud Dahoud.
Jurgen Klopp has revived the Reds’ interest in Dahoud with a reported £25.8 million bid for the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder in January.
But the Liverpool manager’s former club Dortmund are set to join the race for the Germany under-20 international in the coming months.
Bild claim that the Bundesliga side are planning to offer midfielder Sahin as a makeweight in their €15 million offer for Dahoud.
Sahin spent a fruitless five-month spell at Anfield in the 2012/13 season before promptly rejoining Real Madrid prior to moving to Signal Iduna Park.
The Turkey international’s current prospects at Dortmund appear bleak after failing to make a solitary appearance under Thomas Tuchel this season.
