Rumours of the £20 million move that would see Edin Dzeko grace the Bungesliga once again have been denied by Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp.
The 26-year-old Bosnian recently told German newspaper Kicker that he would return to the German top division in the future and also addmited his respect for Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, however he denied links with the club.
Reports on Thursday have said that the deal was all but confirmed, as current Dortmund hit-man Robert Lewandowski has been linked with a move away from the club and may switch to Manchester, with Manchester United reportedly interested.
Therefore, if the departure of Lewandowski goes through, then there will leave a gap to be filled at the German giants.
Dortmund have been quick to deny these rumours as well as general manager Aki Watzke telling SID: "That is sheer nonsense and not funny anymore."
Speaking to a press conference on Thursday, Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp commented on the matter in a joyful way, stating: "I am a bit disappointed Michael Zorc [the club's general manager] left me in the dark and signed him without informing me about the transfer.
However, he was quick to praise Dzeko: "There is no truth to it. Dzeko is a good player, but that's beyond our resources."
Dzeko has been in good form for the English Champions this season, however appearances have been limited the striker and links with a return to Germany may continue to surround the Bosnian.
