Jürgen Klopp has been dealt a huge blow as midfield target Mahmoud Dahoud has ‘zero chance’ of joining Liverpool this winter, according to Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl.Since Klopp’s arrival at Anfield following Brendan Rodgers’s departure,
Since Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool, following Brendan Rodgers’s departure, Dahoud has been consistently linked with a move to Anfield but the German side insisted the player would stay put and amongst reports, Max Eberl, the club’s Sporting Director, has reminded Liverpool that the player won’t be going anywhere.
Speaking to German magazine Kicker, Eberl said:
“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. It is the club’s desire to extend his contract. We have not opened talks yet, but that will soon happen. We will have to consider our options if he only has one year left on his contract next year, but that is pure speculation at this stage,‘ he revealed.
Dahoud, who was born in Syria, pledged his allegiance to Germany after spending the majority of his life in the country, after he was taken to Germany as an infant by his parents in 1996, fleeing from the Assad regime in 1996. The 20-year-old is also said to have attracted interest from Borussia Dortmund, in a deal which would see Nuri Sahin go the other way.
Should Dahoud opt out of renewing his contract at Monchengladbach, the summer transfer window would almost certainly see the midfielder leave the club, as his contract runs out in 2018 meaning the club would lose out on a large pay cheque if they allowed his contract to run out.
