Liverpool target and Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, Mahmoud Dahoud will not leave his present club and move to Anfield this summer. Reza Fazeli, agent of the 20-year-old also mentioned that the player could be available for a cut-price transfer fee of $11 million next season.
“It is certain Mahmoud will stay with Gladbach for now. There has been a lot of interest in him, not just from Liverpool. But, we have an agreement with Gladbach and everything has been postponed for next season.” Fazeli said to theguardian.
The reason behind Gladbach’s decision of not letting go of Dahoud is believed to be Champions League football. The German club has also recently lost Granit Xhaka to Arsenal and they do not want to further weaken their team ahead of the European campaign.
The Germain under-21 international was tracked by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for a long time. The man from Amuda, Syria had a brilliant 2015/16 season in the Bundesliga which caught the eye of many big clubs in Europe.
