Liverpool are hoping to sign exciting Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud.
The Reds' interest in the Bundesliga ace has been reported in a number of newspapers this morning, with the likes of the Daily Mail, the Liverpool Echo and the Guardian all linking Dahoud with a move to Anfield.
The report in the Daily Mail claims that Reds chief Jurgen Klopp will be backed by the club's owners in the summer transfer window, but it's far from certain as to whether they will be able to secure the services of Dahoud.

The Guardian, meanwhile, reports that Borussia Monchengladbach are likely to want as much as €30m for the 20-year-old.
Dahoud, who has represented Germany at Under-21 level, has gone from strength-to-strength recently, so it's not entirely surprising that Klopp appears to be interested in bringing him to Merseyside.
It must be noted that his breakthrough season in the Bundesliga has been an extremely impressive one; with four goals and eight assists in 37 outings, Dahoud clearly has something about him and may well become a leading player in the game over the coming years.
Under Klopp's guidance, there's clearly a project in place at Anfield, but paying up to €30m for Dahoud would represent a risk for the club's hierarchy.
Liverpool have made a number of poor signings in recent years, so this summer looks set to be a big one for all involved.
With Klopp at the helm, Liverpool fans will, understandably, feel more confident that the club will do the business in the next transfer window.
It's safe to say, after a mixed start to life for Klopp on English soil, that three or four top class additions would help him progress this Liverpool team.
Europa League clash
The club's immediate attention, of course, will be securing a place in the semi-final of the Europa League. After securing a 1-1 draw in Germany against Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, the Reds stand every chance of progressing but won't be resting on their laurels in the pursuit of success.
Thomas Tuchel's side, despite failing to produce the goods last week, will still be confident that they can eliminate Liverpool. Dortmund remain one of the classiest sides in European football and will prove a major threat to Klopp's side on Thursday. To progress, Liverpool must once again be at their best.
