Liverpool have made a bid for Borussia Monchengladbach forward Thorgan Hazard as the race for the Belgian international hots up, according to DH.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed a fine breakthrough season, scoring 12 goals and setting up 11 more for the Bundesliga outfit to ensure he has definitively stepped out of the considerable shadow of the older brother, the Chelsea talisman Eden.

 

DH is now reporting that Liverpool have put an offer on the table as they look to bring Hazard Jr to Anfield in the summer.

It is claimed that Borussia Dortmund have also made a bid but Liverpool’s is considered to be higher.

The report doesn’t make clear how much Liverpool are willing to pay but Het Nieuwsblad stated earlier on Monday that BVB have offered £36 million.

Interestingly, however, DH suggests that Hazard is not too enamoured by the prospect of joining international teammate Divock Origi at Anfield.

With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah in attack already, it is claimed that Hazard is aware that game time could be hard to come by at Liverpool.
