Liverpool are linked to box to box midfielder Dahoud again.
According to several sources Liverpool are linked to Dahoud again. Stories stating that Liverpool will go all out to the Borussia Moenchengladbach midfielder this summer. This has been mentioned several times in the past week, but this story just won’t go away. There must be some truth in it.
Box to box dynamo..
Klopp has identified the 20-year-old as the perfect player to bolster his options in the Reds engine room with Dahoud described as a box-to-box dynamo with a supreme work rate and expert range of passing. He would however set Klopp back in the region of £25m, but with the sporting director Max Eberl recently saying; “Mahmoud is an exceptional player and we have no need to sell.” I’m sure it would be closer to £30m.
The Germany Under-21 international scored 4 goals, registering 7 assists in 37 games last season. However Liverpool would face stiff competition for his signature from both Tottenham Hotspur (who’s policy seems to be to chase the players Liverpool are after) as well as Borussia Dortmund.

You do have to question how would he fit into the Liverpool system. He has been linked all summer, since then Klopp has gone on and purchased Wijnaldum. He already had Grujic who could perform in a similar role. Should the money be better spent elsewhere? During preseason and especially the game against Arsenal you could see that Klopp wants high energy intensity. Whilst flooding his team with attacking midfielders who can play in multiple positions.

His contract runs out next summer, so he could be available for free then. However this would open the market up to everyone as he becomes a different commodity altogether. I honestly feel we need to resolve this asap, then loan him back for the season.
They seem to be reluctant to let him go now, but resigned to the fact it will happen next year. Surely that’s the ideal compromise?
