Thorgan Hazard desire to leave Gladbach confirmed
Liverpool are on alert after Thorgan Hazard told Borussia Mönchengladbach he wants to leave.
Jurgen Klopp's side have been linked with the 26-year-old attacking midfielder, the younger brother of Chelsea's Eden Hazard.
It has been reported that Liverpool have already bid £36million (€42m) for the Belgian ace.
Hazard has also been linked with Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
And the race is on after Hazrad told Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl that he wants to quit the Bundesliga club this summer.
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.
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."
Borussia Dortmund are leading the race for Hazard as he wants to join the Bundesliga title hopefuls, according to Kicker . He was also linked late last year with Chelsea and Everton.
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.
