Mahmoud Dahoud is considered by many as the rising star of Borussia Mönchengladbach and he has managed to get a lot of attention at an early stage of his career. He is just 20 and is a key man at the center for Gladbach. Dahoud joined the German side in 2010 and made his first team debut in 2014. The Syrian had a great run of games in the early part of the season and his display in the 5-1 away victory was not only applauded by the travelling side but also by the supporters of the home team. Since the arrival of Andre Schubert – the new manager of Gladbach, Dahoud has been one of his favorites and he has been getting more and more first team chances to feature.
On his early success, Dahoud clearly knows that he should not get carried away and should work on improving his game to the optimum. This is what the youngster had to say, “I’m not taking my foot off the pedal and thinking I’m now a first-team regular. I prepare myself with the mindset that things will get harder, and if they do, I’ll fight my way through it again.”
Dahoud is known to be a classic central midfielder and also plays as a defensive midfielder if needed. He is also known to provide quality assists and long balls across the field. Jurgen Klopp has made his intentions clear by saying that he is ready to let go off players for the betterment of the club. With Jordan Henderson’s future in doubts at Anfield, Liverpool are certainly looking for young talents who can be good fits for the midfield.
Where would he fit in?
Liverpool already have good options when it comes to the position of an attacking midfielder in the likes of Coutinho, Firmino and Lallana. However, when it comes to the defensive positions, the Reds lack options and Klopp will certainly be looking to fill these gaps in the summer transfer window. Dahoud might just be a good match for Klopp’s interests and his vision for the next season. The Syrian could partner up well with Emre Can in the middle of the park and bring in that flair and the work rate in the Liverpool midfield.
Manchester City and Manchester United, both had shown interest in the Syrian earlier this season due to his prowess in the middle of the park. A summer move looks very much on the cards for the talented kid and the big names of English football will surely be ready with a lot to offer.
