Jurgen Klopp has sent Liverpool scouts to watch long-term target German U21 Mahmoud Dahoud, who plays for Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach.

​Klopp sees the midfielder as an option for the Reds' future and has been impressed by the youngster's development in Germany.

​The 21-year old has played 46 times for the club since his debut in 2014, scoring six goals.

​Last August, the player's agent rejected a new contract under the assumption that Dahoud would be allowed to leave at the end of the 2016/17 season.

​The Syrian-born playmaker has also interested Pep Guardiola, who is keen on overhauling his ageing Manchester City squad to add youthful energy to the team, which already consists of 19-year old striker Gabriel Jesus, 21-year old Leroy Sane and 22-year old Raheem Sterling.

​The average age of the Manchester City squad is one of the oldest in the Premier League, and Dahoud would be a welcome addition to Guardiola's side.

A host of other top European clubs are also suspected to be monitoring Dahoud, such as Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Juventus.

​Dahoud has made six appearances for Germany's under 21 side this season and is seen as a future star for the German national side.

​He is the first player born in Syria to play in the Bundesliga, having fled the country as an infant to escape from the Assad regime in 1996
