Liverpool target Mahmoud Dahoud is set to make a decision shortly over which club he will play for next season, according to reports.

He also says that Dahoud is being courted by several big European clubs after the Express originally reported that Liverpool were looking to sign the 21-year-old in January.
Jurgen Klopp is a keen admirer of the exciting German talent but Bild reported that he was set to stay in Germany to join Klopp’s former side Borussia Dortmund.
Dahoud was born in Syria but has made six appearances for the German Under-21 side in the last 12 months.

He has been in blistering form for Monchengladbach this season playing in 31 matches in all competitions.
The central midfielder has provided five assists for his teammates and scored his only goal of the season in a Bundesliga clash with Hoffenheim in November.
Dahoud was even more impressive for Monchengladbach last season when he scored five goals and bagged nine assists as his side qualified for the Champions League after finishing fourth in the German top tier.
Football Insider Verdict
Liverpool can really make a statement if they manage to fend off some of Europe’s biggest clubs to sign Dahoud. He really is one of the Bundesliga’s most exciting young players and, although the central midfield is not the key area that needs strengthening for the Reds, Dahoud will be a huge investment in the club’s future. Having Klopp as manager could prove to be an advantage but as a report has said, he may be more inclined to continue his development in Germany under the stewardship of Thomas Tuchel in Dortmund. There’s been no hint as to how much the 21-year-old would cost Liverpool but his eagerness to leave his current side might help whittle that down a bit.
