Manchester United are considering launching a January bid for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan according to TalkSport.
The sports radio station states that the Red Devils are interested in signing the Germany international whose contract expires in 18 months.
Gundogan has also been linked with a move to Liverpool since the appointment of Jugen Klopp earlier this season.
Sportmediaset [as per the Daily Star] have reported that the Liverpool are eyeing a £22 million move for the deep-lying playmaker.
Both United and Liverpool have received a boost in the race to sign Gundogan after Serie A giants Juventus cooled their interest in the Germany international.
Gundgoan was previously identified as a priority target by Juve but have subsequently denied interest in the 25-year-old. Dortmund recently rejected a €30 million bid from Juventus for the midfield playmaker according to Goal.
The deep-lying playmaker has five assists and two goals for Dortmund in 28 appearances this season.
