Borussia Monchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed that Thorgan Hazard wants to leave this summer amid claims that Liverpool have made an offer, speaking to the club’s official website.

Eden’s little brother has enjoyed a fine season in Germany, scoring 11 goals and providing 12 assists for Gladbach and he could be about to follow in his siblings footsteps with a big-money move to the Premier League.

DH claimed on Monday that Liverpool have made an offer for Hazard. They have apparently outbid Borussia Dortmund, who were willing to pay £36 million according to Het Nieuwsblad.

 

And Eberl has said that the Belgian international has confirmed his intention to prove himself away from the Borussia Park.

“We made our intentions to extend Thorgan's contract clear a while back now, but he hasn't reciprocated that interest,” the director said.

“He has now told us that he doesn't want to extend his contract and instead wants to take the next step in his career by leaving the club.

“Interested parties have to offer us a transfer fee that recognises his worth as an exceptional Bundesliga forward and a regular feature in one of the best national teams in the world.”

Eberl adds that there is no release clause in Hazard’s contract but Gladbach may be forced to sell given that he will be a free agent in 2020.

Interestingly, DH claimed that Hazard could turn down a move to Liverpool as he believes he would play more regular first-team football at Dortmund.
