Ever since the start of the summer transfer window, Liverpool have been targeting Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mahmoud Dahoud. It looks like Jurgen Klopp really want the 20 year old in his team. Reports from reliable Liverpool journalists state that the German wants to go all in for the young midfielder.
Monchengladbach, who have already lost two of their Central Midfielders, don’t want to lose another and have rejected Liverpool’s approach for the German. Reports state that the German club have already rejected Liverpool’s 20 Million bid for Dahoud.
Even though Liverpool are ready to pay a big amount for the promising talent, the fact that Monchengladbach don’t have any other top Midfielder in their side makes things very difficult for the English club. And it looks like Liverpool will fail to land Dahoud this summer.
Recent updates from Liverpool journalists state that even if Klopp can’t get Dahoud this summer, he will come back for the German next summer. Klopp has Dahoud in his long term plans and is desperate to get him even if he has to wait one more year. The 20 year old is also keen to work with Klopp and has refused to sign a contract extension with Monchengladbach.
Liverpool want him very much and it won’t be a big surprise if we see Dahoud in the Red jesrsey soon. But why is Klopp really desperate to bring him to Anfield? Why does he sees Dahoud as a part of his long term plans? Let’s see if Dahoud is the perfect long term Midfield solution for Liverpool. Join 888 casino and bet on the transfer to go through.
Mahmoud Dahoud, who is currently 20 years old, plays as a central midfielder for the German club Borussia Monchengladbach. The youngster is also comfortable with playing as a defensive midfielder or as an attacking midfielder. Though he is a German nationality, Dahoud is of Syrian descent. The right legged Midfielder wears Number 8 for his club.
Dahoud started his youth career with SC Germania Reusrath. Then he continued his junior level career with Fortuna Dusseldorf before signing for Borussia Monchengladbach at the age of 14 in 2010.
The young German continued his development at the Monchengladbach academy until 2014.
On 28th August 2014, Dahoud made his senior team debut for Borussia Monchengladbach in their Europa League play off fixture against FK Sarajevo. He made his Bundesliga debut against Borussia Dortmund at the end of the 2014-15 season.
The 20 year old scored his first goal for the club on 23rd September 2015 against Augsburg (Monchengladbach won the match 4-2). He also made his Champions League debut in the same month. His impact was to be clearly seen and he was voted as the Fans’ Player Of The Month for September. At the end of the 2015-16 season, when Borussia Monchengladbach finished fourth in the league, Dahoud had 5 goals and 9 assists to his name.
His performances in the 2015-16 season earned him a Germany U-21 cap in March 2016 against Faroe Islands.
At the age of just 20, Dahoud is a very good passer of the ball, has got power in his boots, can test the keeper from long distances and can also pull off spot-on tackles. The German’s passing varies from short passes to defence splitting through passes. He is also good at finding his teammates through long balls.
The youngster’s performances make people wonder how someone is able to play with so much maturity at such a young age. Dahoud is very calm on the ball and does not panic when pressed upon. He has also played in intense atmospheres and have not let it affect his game.
Even though he is not a very physical person, he is courageous enough to battle with other players who are bigger and more physical than him.
His calmness and his courage can earn him the captain’s armband in the future, no matter which club he plays for.
And this same reason brings us to the conclusion that, Dahoud could be the perfect long term Midfield solution for Liverpool.
Liverpool and Klopp should do their best to land the German at Anfield this summer. If they can’t bring him in this time, they surely will have to go again next season.
