Premier League sides eye move for Bundesliga holding midfielder.
English sides Manchester United and Arsenal are set to battle it out for the signature of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan as he eyes a move to the Premier League, the Daily Express reports.
Reports in Germany are claiming that the midfielder does not want to sign a new deal to stay at Jurgen Klopp’s side and the club will now listen to offers for him during the January transfer window.
Gundogan’s current deal expires in the summer of 2016, and following Robert Lewandowski’s acrimonious departure to Bayern Munich on a free transfer, Dortmund are keen to cash in.
The player had previously admitted that he would like to test himself in the Premier League and Manchester United are thought to be favourites to snap him up.
“Playing outside Germany is one of my big goals,” he said.
“If one day I leave here, I’d like to play in Spain or for one of the big teams in England.”
