Liverpool have been dealt a big transfer blow after the Reds missed out on a move for one of their transfer targets for this summer.
Borussia Moenchengladbach winger Thorgan Hazard is a long-term target for Premier League title chasers Liverpool but the Reds won’t get their man.
Liverpool have missed out to German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund on a £40m deal for the player.
Thorgan Hazard recently admitted the summer transfer to Borussia Dortmund in a chat with Belgian media outlet VTM Nieuws.
The 26-year-old has a year left on his current deal with Borussia Moenchengladbach who are in a three-team fight for Champions League football for next season with both Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen.
Only one of the three teams will qualify for Champions League football next season.
Borussia Moenchengladbach have decided to sell Thorgan Hazard to one of their rivals in the German Bundesliga with the player keen to stay in Germany.
His quest to remain in Germany ruled Liverpool out of the equation.
Thorgan Hazard is the younger brother of Chelsea star Eden Hazard and they both play for the Belgian national team.
They were part of the Belgium team that finished in third place at last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
