Liverpool were dealt a bitter blow in their transfer plans, when Jurgen Klopp’s former team Borussia Dortmund announced the signing of Reds’ long-time target Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Monchengladbach.
News of the deal, reported to be around £10.3 million, will have come as a blow for Liverpool fans, who had seen the club get linked with the German for an elongated period of time.
Holding midfielder position has somewhat been a worry for Liverpool this season. They have looked a completely different team when captain Jordan Henderson hasn’t been available. Emre Can hasn’t looked comfortable operating as the deepest midfielder and with Lucas Leiva getting older, the team looks severely off the pace in that area.
Klopp has identified this problem in the squad and the Reds have been linked with several defensive midfielders in the past few months, with Dahoud among them. However, with him joining Dortmund, we compile a list of three players who Liverpool could bring in instead of Dahoud.
