Dortmund have been reluctant to let go of their star man whose contract comes to an end in 2016 and offered a contract extension until 2019 worth €6.5 million per-season.

Gündoğan has however, been unwilling to strike a deal with his current club.

Dortmund are unwilling to lose Gündoğan on a free contract as they did with Robert Lewandowski.

The Bundesliga outfit could enter talks with other clubs in the summer if the 24-year-old does not agree to a new deal by then.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been closely linked with Gündoğan.

The Germany international of Turkish origin missed a large part of the season due to injury but has since recovered and returned to the starting lineup.
