Chelsea and Manchester City are among the Premier League teams monitoring Borussia Dortmund’s midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud.
Everton and Tottenham are both holding an eye on the 25-year-old German international Dahoud ahead of the summer transfer window.
Dahoud, who was born in Syria, is well-known to current Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
In 2017, he moved to Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach in a contract decided upon when Tuchel was still in charge of the German giants.
Tuchel had left the Signal Iduna Park club, which had beaten Liverpool and Barcelona to Dahoud’s signature, by the time the deal was completed.
Chelsea and Manchester City were both interested in Dahoud until he was signed by Dortmund.
Dahoud joined Dortmund on a five-year contract that will expire with only one year remaining this summer, raising his attractiveness to his admirers who have inquired about his availability in the coming window.
After a period of struggle for playing time under interim head coach Edin Terzic, Dahoud has recently experienced a revival, becoming a regular starter, and his impressive results coinciding with a period of improvement in Dortmund’s form.
Dortmund has won five and lost one of their last seven fixtures, advancing to the last eight of the Champions League.
Dahoud has scored twice in that run from his central midfield role, including one of the vital goals in Dortmund’s 5-4 aggregate victory over Sevilla in the Champions League last-16.
This season, Dahoud has also broken into the Germany squad, winning his first two caps against Turkey and the Czech Republic.
Chelsea and Manchester City were also interested in Dahoud until he signed with Dortmund.
Dahoud joined Dortmund on a five-year deal that will end this summer with just one year left, making him more appealing to his admirers who have asked about his availability in the upcoming window.
After battling for playing time under interim head coach Edin Terzic, Dahoud has recently undergone a comeback, becoming a regular starter, and his promising results coinciding with Dortmund’s improved form.
Dortmund has won five and drawn one of their last seven games, qualifying to the Champions League’s last eight.
