Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign German international and Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud for quite some time.
The Reds were looking to sign him in the summer transfer window but the move did not happen. In fact, the latest reports suggest that the Merseysiders never made an offer for the 20-year-old starlet.
Few days back, reports indicated that Liverpool will move in with a serious offer of 30 million euros (£26million) to hire the services of Dahoud in the January transfer window (via Express).
However, Borussia Monchengladbach chief Max Eberl has claimed that Mahmoud will be going nowhere in the winter window. Emerl stated (Kicker):
“There is a zero per cent 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.”
The versatile midfielder has not been able to perform at the optimum level so far this season. In 10 appearances, Dahoud has not scored yet.
Moreover, the youngster has mainly warmed the bench this season. He has only started four out of ten league games, eight out of 16 games in all competitions and has only completed 90 minutes in four fixtures.
In such a scenario, an offer of £26million from Liverpool might be tempting for the German side. It will be intriguing to see how the transfer saga unfolds in January.
