Kevin De Bruyne is a key target for Jurgen Klopp.
Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is a €15m target for Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to German newspaper Bild.
De Bruyne has been on-loan at fellow Bundesliga club Werder Bremen this season, after signing for the Blues from Belgian side Genk in January 2012.
The 21-year-old has had an incredibly successful campaign in Germany in 2012/13, playing 33 league matches for Bremen – netting 10 times and assisting in a further nine.
It’s not known whether the young Belgian will be in likely new manager Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge and Dortmund aren’t going to waste any time strengthening their squad with De Bruyne.
Chelsea paid just £7 million for the Belgium international less than 12 months ago but it seems that Jurgen Klopp would be prepared to increase that fee significantly to land his man.
Dortmund are looking to re-build after a disappointing Champions League final defeat to rivals Bayern Munich on Saturday, with an 89th minute strike from Arjen Robben securing a 1-2 victory.
Playmaker Mario Goetze has already agreed a £32.5m to move from the Westfalenstadion to the Allianz Arena as well.
With a gap in attacking midfield it looks as if Klopp considers De Bruyne to be the perfect replacement for his former young talisman and the boss already knows the Belgian can cut it in the top tier of Germany.
Dortmund are also likely to pip Chelsea to the post for the signature of Brazlian starlet Bernard, who looks set to swap Ateltico Mineiro for a black and yellow shirt rather than a blue one.
