Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has cooled speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool to be reunited with Jurgen Klopp.
Since Klopp arrived at Anfield earlier this month, attention has inevitably turned to which players might follow the German coach from the Bundesliga.
Gundogan spent four years working with Klopp at Dortmund and the Germany midfielder was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League following Klopp’s resignation at the end of last season.
Manchester United were most heavily linked with the 24-year-old after he vowed not to renew his contract beyond 2016 but Gundogan then performed a U-turn to extend his deal for an extra year.
Despite that commitment, there has been talk of Liverpool pursuing Gundogan but the star remains happy in Dortmund.
“This is an issue that is always floating around,” he said.
“I am very happy with BVB and feel very comfortable here. Of course, I can imagine remaining here beyond the end of the season.”
