The Germany U21 international has been heavily linked with a move to Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Italian giants Juventus. Although, it is now official that the young midfielder will remain in the Bundesliga.
Mahmoud Dahoud has agreed to join Borussia Dortmund from Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end of this Bundesliga campaign. Reports suggest the fee is around €10m and may raise to €15m.

– He has already shown he can play at the top level.
The highly rated midfielder had reportedly been the subject of a transfer clash between Dortmund, Liverpool and Juventus in recent days. It is now official that Dortmund won that race.
Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl said following ahead of the move:
– It was important for the player and the club that a decision was reached. Now it’s off our minds and we can move on.
