Since moving to Dortmund, the 24 year old has racked up one hundred and thirteen appearances for the club, scoring thirteen goals while he was part of their double winning squad and 2012 and that that reached the Champions League final a year later.
He has nine caps for his country and two goals, though he was not part of the German’s squad for their victorious World Cup campaign last summer due to injury.
Gundogan began his career with VfL Bochum II then spent two seasons with FC Nurnberg before signing for Dortmund.
