Borussia Dortmund are prepared to sell midfielder İlkay Gündoğan according to the Daily Express.

Gündoğan does not want to sign a new contract with Dortmund according to the report.

The 24-year-old midfielder’s contract expires in 2016 and Dortmund want to avoid losing Gündoğan on a free transfer.

Manchester United have been closely linked with Gündoğan but Arsenal and Liverpool are also reported to be interested in the Dortmund star.

Gündoğan was one of the central figures of the Dortmund side that reached the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2012-13 season.

The 24-year-old was ruled out out of first team football for over 400 days with injury but has since recovered and returned to first team football.

Gündoğan has made no secret of his desire to play in England and was recently quoted as saying: “Playing outside Germany is one of my big goals. If one day I leave here, I’d like to play in Spain or for one of the big teams in England.”
