Atleti are looking to build upon their success in recent years following the long-term contract extension for manager Diego Simeone.

The Madrid based side are expected to face competition from Manchester United and Arsenal for the 24-year-old’s signature.

The 24-year-old’s contract runs out in July 2016 and Dortmund will be keen to cash in if Gündoğan does not put pen to paper on a new deal.
