Manchester City and Chelsea target Diego Godin is being tracked by Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund, according to talkSPORT.

27-year-old Godin has impressed in the Spanish capital since joining Atletico from La Liga rivals Villarreal in August 2010, and his performances in the heart of Diego Simeone's defence has seen the Uruguayan linked with a switch to a number of Europe's top clubs.

Premier League title rivals City and Chelsea were both linked with potential moves for the former Nacional star, with the former in particular actively seeking defensive reinforcements after the groin injury that kept Belgian captain Vincent Kompany sidelined during the early portion of the 2013/14 campaign.

Despite the widespread interest in Godin, however, the summer transfer window closed on September 2 without the centre-back having left the Vicente Calderon. Although he still appears to be an integral member of the La Liga side's squad, talkSPORT suggest that Dortmund are the latest team to hold an interest in Godin.

Die Schwarzgelben manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly dispatched scouts to monitor the defender, who has won 71 senior caps for this country, and could even be set to bid for Godin when the window re-opens for business in January.
