Klopp's Next Transfer? Liverpool to make £25m offer for 'sensational' playmaker. Agent confirmed interest already

The Mahmoud Dahoud speculation simply refuses to die, and reports today suggest that Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign the 'sensational' Borussia Moenchengladbach star uring the next transfer window.

In August, Dahoud's Agent confirmed Liverpool's interest in €40m-rated Dahoud, and according to the Daily Express on Saturday:

"Jurgen Klopp had his scouts check out Mahmoud Dahoud during Borussia Monchengladbach’s hammering at Manchester City on Wednesday. Liverpool are plotting a £25m bid when the transfer window opens in January".

Klopp seems intent on signing Dahoud, and the player's agent has already confirmed LFC's interest, but if Liverpool seal the deal, something will have to give in midfield. Whose place will come under threat?

* If Jordan Henderson remains captain, then he will stay in the team for most games (whether fans like it or not).

* If Klopp sticks with a 433 formation, that leaves Can, Grujic, Wijnaldum, Stewart, Lucas, Lallana (if he stays in midfield), and Dahoud fighting it out of for the other two places (or, just one place in a 4231).

This level of competition may be sustainable in the Champions League/Europa League, but without European competition, it's hard to see how Klopp can keep seven central midfielders happy.
