Liverpool are facing the prospect of missing out on one of their top transfer targets, as his club dig their heels in over any potential sale.
Jurgen Klopp has been tracking Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud, however the Bundesliga club are determined to resist any offered for the Syrian born midfielder.
Dahoud, a Germany Under-21 international, has attracted plenty of interest from clubs around Europe, including Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund, but Borussia Monchengladbach are determined to keep hold of their star midfielder, especially in the wake of Granit Xhaka’s £34million departure to Arsenal.
Liverpool are believed to have offered £25million (€30million) for Dahoud, who is believed to be happy to remain at the German club for “one more season” with is contract set to expire in 2018.
Borussia Monchengladbach are preparing to offer the German a new deal, but if that offer is knocked back by the player, he could be available for a significantly smaller fee this time next year.
