CONFIRMED: Liverpool transfer target wants to leave Borussia Mönchengladbach

Liverpool are targeting Borussia Mönchengladbach player Thorgan Hazard who is the younger brother of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. It has been reported that Liverpool have already bid £36million (€42m) for the Belgian ace. Gladbach were keen to extend Hazard's contract, which runs until 2020, but the 26-year-old has turned down the offer as he wants to take the next step in his career. Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed that Hazard’s younger brother wants to leave the club. Eberl told Sky Germany, in quotes reported on Bulinews.com : "Thorgan has informed us that he doesn't want to extend his contract and that he wants to leave the club in the summer to take the next step. "I've heard this statement 15 times in the last 10 years as really great players have left us. That's the way it is for us. "We'll have to see where his path will continue. I don't know whether it will be at BVB (Borussia Dortmund), who are constantly being mentioned, or at Atlético Madrid, Liverpool or another club." Hazard has scored nine goals in the Bundesliga this season, and has made 11 assists. He joined Gladbach from Chelsea for £7.2m in 2015.
