Jurgen Klopp pondering a move for Edin Dzeko

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund are chasing Edin Dzeko in a bid to fill the void left if they lose star players in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.

Dzeko is looking to secure first team football, having played second fiddle to star strikers Sergio Agüero and Álvaro Negredo so far this season, and is open to offers in the January window.

The German outfit are reluctant to spend over £15million for the Bosnian, which is below Manchester City’s valuation of the player. Dortmund may be forced to pay out though, as their current star striker Robert Lewandowski is destined for a move away.

However Jurgen Klopp is facing competition from Italian giants Inter Milan, who are also keeping their eye on the City striker.

Dortmund are also expecting bids from Manchester United for midfield duo Marco Reus and İlkay Gündoğan – which may help fund the move for Dzeko.

German international Reus has been in superb form this season, having scored 19 goals from midfield this season.

Reus has a £29.4million release clause in his clause which Moyes plans to activate in order to bring the German to the club. Former Dortmund player Shinji Kagawa made the same switch 18 months ago but has struggled to make an impact since then.

Gündoğan is also set to be included in any deal that is made. The playmaker joined the German giants two years ago but has made only three appearances this term.
