Serie A champions line-up bid for Barcelona and Liverpool target Ilkay Gündoğan


Juventus are lining up a bid for Borussia Dortmund’s deep-lying playmaker Ilkay Gündoğan according to Goal.

The Serie A Champions are understood to be preparing a January bid for the Germany international.

The report goes onto state that Barcelona – who were linked with Gündoğan over the summer – are also closely monitoring the situation. The 25-year-old has also been linked with a move to Liverpool ever since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp last month.

Gündoğan recently played down reports linking him with a move away from Borussia Dortmund but opted not to rule them out completely.

“About my future? I currently have no idea. This is very, very far away,” Gündoğan told Sport1.

Gündoğan has started the season well in the Bundesliga under Dortmund’s new manager Thomas Tuchel. Dortmund sit in second place in the Bundesliga with 29 points in 12 games.

The 25-year-old has provided five assists and scored two goals in 21 appearances for Dortmund this season.
