Liverpool plan to target £36m Bundesliga pair again after missing out this summer

Liverpool will reportedly revisit their interest in Mahmoud Dahoud and Christian Pulisic in future transfer windows after failing to sign them this summer.

With both Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund unwilling to sell, the Reds were unable to agree on deals for either player.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, they will continue to monitor their progress in the coming months and will hope that the situation changes with both youngsters potentially becoming Liverpool players in the not too distant future.

According to the report, Dahoud would fetch a fee of around £25m, while Pulisic would cost up to £11m after that was the initial offer rejected by Dortmund for the USA international.

Liverpool may well have a window of opportunity in the Dahoud situation in particular though, with the 20-year-old entering the final year of his contract next year.

It was a busy summer for Jurgen Klopp despite his failed attempts to sign the aforementioned duo, with the likes of Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Georginio Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane moving to Anfield.

Although he will likely be continuously backed in the transfer market by the club, they’ll want to see some real progress between now and January at the very least first before they sign off more transfers.

Liverpool have started with four points from their opening three games of the Premier League campaign, although their shortcomings were on display again in the defeat at Burnley, while they should have held on to claim all three points at Tottenham.

The warning signs were already there in the 4-3 win over Arsenal, and so perhaps Klopp should be prioritising a different type of player in the next two windows.
