Liverpool have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Mahmoud Dahoud.
Jurgen Klopp wants to reinforce his midfield, and has been keeping tabs on the Borussia Monchengladbach player, but recent news has made a mid season signing look a lot less likely.
In an interview in Kicker magazine, sporting director at Gladbach Max Eberl said that there have been no bids for the 20 year old, and that none would be accepted in any case.
“There is a zero per cent chance that Mahmoud will leave in January,” Eberl said.
“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.”
Dahoud has enjoyed a sensational year in the black and green of Mochengladbach, breaking into the side and turning heads across Europe with his dynamic performances in the middle of the park. There may have been no bids for the German yet but there will have been plenty of interest from around Europe’s top leagues. It’s no surprise that Liverpool wanted to seal a march on their rivals with a January bid – but unfortunately it looks doomed to fail.
