Mahmoud Dahoud on Atlético Madrid’s radar
The Spanish club has asked Borussia Dortmund about the Syrian-nationalized German midfielder, according to Sky Sports.
Atlético have spent the past few months planning the squad for next season. The midfield is a key area that needs strengthening for Simeone and according to Sky Sports, Borussia Dortmund’s Mahmoud Dahoud has precisely the kind of characteristics that El Cholo is looking for - an experienced player with quality who would be well within the club’s budget. There is a strong possibility that Dahoud, Syrian-born but with German nationality, could join on a free transfer as his contract is up at the end of June.
The 27-year-old has been with Dortmund since 2017, as his contract with the German club expire this summer, he has been able to negotiate with other clubs since the start of the year. With a market value of 18 million euros according to specialist website Transfermarkt, he has spent a large chunk of the season inactive after suffering a shoulder injury suffered at the start of the campaign. In September, after conservative attempts to treat the injury failed, it was decided that it would be better for the player to undergo surgery.

Now fully recovered and available once again, he has made three appearances in the eight games that Dortmund have played since he was given the all-clear (against Freiburg, Werder Bremen and Leipzig), coming on as a late sub in all of those games. He will be hoping to make up for his limited playing time between now and the end of the season although he has no shortage of suitors.

Arsenal and Leicester in the Premier League, AC Milan and Roma in Serie A, Turkey’s Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray and Betis and Sevilla in LaLiga.
