Mahmoud Dahoud: A man in high demand

Juventus will step up their attempts to sign Liverpool target Mahmoud Dahoud, according to reports in the Italian press.

Borussia Dortmund are also believed to be interested in Borussia Monchengladbach’s 20-year-old midfielder, but Juve will intensify their efforts to land the Germany youth star in January.

Dahoud reportedly has a €10million release clause that will be activated next summer, meaning that the Bundesliga side could try and offload the starlet in the next transfer window.

The Bundesliga side are desperate to maximise the fee for the player, who signed for Gladbach at the age of 14. And Calciomercato believe Monchengladbach could offer him to Liverpool, who have shown a strong interest in his signature over the last few months.

Dahoud is believed to have been watched by Liverpool scouts on Tuesday during  Germany U21s European U21 Championship qualifier with Finland. German publication Express claimed Jurgen Klopp sent scouts to Seinajoki to watch Dahoud, who played 84 minutes in Germany’s 1-0 victory.

Klopp was very insterested in Dahoud in the summe, but Granit Xhaka’s move to Arsenal meant Gladback were keen to hold on to the player until at least January.

The Reds could make another approach in the winter window for the player, who has the same agent as Emre Can.
Liverpool have met with Reza Fazeli on a number of occasions throughout the summer to discuss a  new deal for Can, and if they hammer out a new deal for the German international then they may well find themselves at the head of the queue for Dahoud.
