Borussia Dortmund relegation would see fire sale

Borussia Dortmund could be set for a fire sale if they're relegated this season, according to the Express.

Incredibly, Jurgen Klopp's side are currently sitting at the bottom of the Bundesliga after picking up just one victory in their last 10 outings.

And now, with the club seemingly in turmoil, a number of their top stars could leave this summer, with some of England's biggest clubs hovering around. 

Manchester United interest 

Unsurprisingly, last summer's big spenders Manchester United appear to be keen to add two of Dortmund's German internationals to their squad. 

The same report has in fact suggested that the Red Devils have an interest in both Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, but it remains to be seen as to whether Louis van Gaal and Co. step up their interest in the duo in the near future. 

There's no doubt about it, Hummels and Reus are still recognised as fantastic players, but have struggled with injury throughout the course of the campaign. 

And, with Manchester United seemingly in need of some defensive experience, Hummels would no doubt prove a fine coup for the club, while Reus would give them even more fire power in the attacking third. 

The Reus chase won't be easy for United, however, with a number of clubs interested in his services. In fact, the same report has revealed that Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea are all admirers of the playmaker. 

Arsenal in for Gundogan 

Arsenal, meanwhile, have an interest in Ilkay Gundogan, according to the same report. Gundogan, who has had injury problems himself over the course of the last year or so, would no doubt improve Arsene Wenger's midfield options at the Emirates, with the report suggesting that the north London club could pay as much as £15 million for his services. 

The likes of Manchester United and Arsenal will no doubt be watching proceedings at Dortmund with great interest over the coming weeks and months.
