Manchester United target Ilkay Gundogan has added more fuel to speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League by declaring he does not know where his future lies.
The 23-year-old Dortmund star, who is said to be valued at £24million, is one of several central midfielders Manchester United manager David Moyes is interested in bringing to Old Trafford.
Gundogan has played just one game for Jurgen Klopp's side this season due to a back injury, however his absence has not had an impact on Manchester United's level of interest.
And the Germany international, who is out of contract at the end of next season, has revealed he has not decided if he wants to commit his long-term future to Dortmund.
Speaking to Sport Bild, Gundogan said: "I have not made a final decision yet. BVB are the first team I am talking to.
"I will soon make a well-thought decision. But I am keeping my options open at this point.
"Borussia Dortmund have not set me an ultimatum. I am just trying to get healthy again and get back to my best form. That's the main priority for BVB and for myself."
Gundogan's latest comments will be music to the ears of Manchester United supporters and Moyes, as the Premier League champions are in desperate need of a world-class central midfielder.
Moyes and his coaching team have been scouring Europe for possible targets over the last couple of weeks - but have so far failed to bring in any new reinforcements during the January transfer window.
