Klopp wants Dahoud.

Jurgen Klopp to send scouts to watch transfer target on Tuesday night

Published 2 Comments

With the transfer window closing last week, you’d think that managers won’t be thinking about signing players again until January.

However, it seems that Premier League bosses are always looking at potential signings. Well, Jurgen Klopp is anyway.

That’s because, according to the Mirror, the German has sent scouts to watch a transfer target tonight. That man is Mahmoud Dahoud, a player that the Reds were heavily linked with throughout the summer.

Dahoud will represent Germany under-21’s against Finland tonight and Klopp has ordered some Liverpool scout to take a close look on the 20-year-old.

Klopp was desperate to sign the midfielder this summer but his club, Borussia Monchengladbach, were reluctant to allow him to leave after they had already sold star man Granit Xhaka to Arsenal earlier in the window.

But, the report claims that Klopp hasn’t lost interest in the highly-rated youngster, and is willing to wait in order to sign his number one midfield target.

Liverpool had a £25 million bid for Dahoud rejected during the transfer window and will renew their interest next summer if he continues to impress this season.

However, Gladbach are obviously very keen to keep Dahoud and are planning on offering him a new contract, although he still has two years left on his deal.

Despite Dahoud making 32 Bundesliga appearances last campaign, he has failed to start in Gladbach’s two Champions League qualifiers and also their opening league match against Bayer Leverkusen.


However, another central midfielder is definitely on Klopp’s shopping list for next summer. Emre Can has struggled with injury during the first part of this season, while captain Jordan Henderson has come in for criticism for his performances in the opening few matches.

Klopp will have to play a long waiting game if he is to land Dahoud, but he clearly rates the young German and will be keeping a close eye on him throughout the campaign. And, if he has another decent season, don’t be surprised to see Liverpool attempting to sign him yet again.
