Agent Confirms: 'Liverpool' are interested in signing 'sensational' €40m playmaker who's 'incredibly important' to BMG

Last month, Liverpool reportedly submitted an official bid for Borussia Moenchengladbach (BMG) star Mahmoud Dahoud, and although a deal appears to be off the table for the current transfer window, Dahoud's agent has officially confirmed that the Reds are interested in signing Dahoud.

When asked this week about a possible transfer to Liverpool, Dahoud's agent told The Guardian:

“There has been a lot of interest in him, not just from Liverpool, but everything has been postponed for next season. Then, it will be up to [BMG] to accept a fee they think is acceptable.”

The Guardian further claims:

"BMG rejected an offer of €40m from PSG this month".

Some info about Dahoud, who - according to his agent - does not have an £8.5m buyout clause in his contract:

* 20-year old central midfielder. Current contract expires: 2018. 14 goals/assists in 44 apps for BMG (One every 189 mins).

* Feb 2016: Former teeam-mate Granit Xhaka raved: "Dahoud is sensational. He's incredibly important to us, he's still young and can still learn a lot."

* Scouting Report (Strengths): "Excels between the lines. Extremely clever link. Belting strike. Strong in the dribble. Keen to tackle. Smart at stealing the ball".

* As for weaknesses; according to BMG boss Andre Schubert: "He [Dahoud] has to be more efficient and learn to ease off, and recognise that he doesn’t always have to run”.

A 'real engine' and a 'willing runner', who (according to Schubert) runs too much? Sounds just like an archetypal Jurgen Klopp-type player. In fact, he sounds like another Adam Lallana *shudder*. Luckily, Dahoud appears to have a good head on his shoulders. When asked recently about leaving BMG, he told Kicker:

"Who says I should leave Gladbach? I still have room for improvement. My finishing has to improve, I have to get stronger in the air and I can still improve physically to get stronger on the pitch".

Spot on. Dahoud is only 20, so why leave? Where's the fire? He's a regular starter in one of the best leagues in the world, so there's no need to change clubs so early in his fledgling career.
