According to the Daily Mail, Borussia Monchengladbach star Mahmoud Dahoud looks unlikely to leave the club this summer despite efforts from Liverpool.

Dahoud, 20, was born in Syria but after his family fled to Germany, he eventually signed for Gladbach as a 14-year-old having been with Fortuna Dusseldorf earlier.

The midfielder, who six caps for Germany at youth level, became a regular in the Gladbach side last season, making a total of 41 appearances and notching an impressive five goals and eight assists.

One of Germany's top young talents, Dahoud is unsurprisingly attracting interest, and after Gladbach already lost midfielders Havard Nordtveit and Granit Xhaka to West Ham and Arsenal respectively, they won't be too keen to lose their midfield sensation.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp

Now, the Daily Mail report that Dahoud is likely to stay with the Bundesliga side during this transfer window, despite Liverpool's 'aggressive' attempts to land the player.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will be well aware of the top young talents in his native Germany, and Dahoud certainly fits that bill. With questions over the future of Joe Allen, Dahoud had been eyed as a Liverpool target this summer, but they will allegedly be left frustrated as Dahoud is set to stay with Gladbach - for now.

Reports from German newspaper Express suggest that Dahoud isn't yet ready to sign a new contract with Gladbach, as his current deal only expires in 2018.

The same report claims that Klopp was ready to spend £25m on Dahoud, but he is likely to stay until at least 2017 - and it would be little surprise to see Liverpool make another move for the youngster in the future.
