Ilkay Gundogan wants to stay at Borussia Dortmund beyond the end of this season.
Germany midfielder Gundogan has been consistently linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park in recent years, with rumours of a reunion with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool emerging since the ex-Dortmund boss’ appointment at Anfield.
However, the 24-year-old has denied such suggestions and is happy to remain a Dortmund player for the time being.
“This is an issue that is always floating around,” Gundogan said at a sponsor’s event in Dortmund.
“I am very happy with BVB and feel very comfortable here. Of course, I can imagine remaining here beyond the end of the season.”
Dortmund travel to Azerbaijan to face Qabala in the Europa League on Thursday.
After a draw with PAOK on matchday two, Gundogan is eager to take all three points and hold onto pole position in Group C – with the ultimate aim to reach the final.
“We need to win the game and retain top spot,” he added.
“It is realistic to reach the final – we have great potential.
“With the squad we have, we are a team that belongs in the Champions League.”
