Barcelona could derail Liverpool’s transfer hopes

Mahmoud Dahoud

Barcelona are reportedly considering making a move for Liverpool target Mahmoud Dahoud.

The 21-year-old Borussia Mönchengladbach ace is wanted by Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp and remains a primary target despite the manager having missed out on him last summer.

We did go back in for him again earlier this month but the Germans are having none of it. Instead, Liverpool are expected to make a fresh approach at the end of the season but they may now face some serious competition.

If Barcelona miss out on Marseille midfielder Maxime Lopez it is believed that they will turn to Dahoud which could prove a major stumbling block for the Reds.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are planning contract talks with Dahoud in the hope of persuading him to stay with them. Speaking recently, their sporting director Max Eberl said: “We will hold more talks in the near future. We want that Mo makes the second and third step here.”
