Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are considering a move to sign Borrusia Dortmund winger Jakub Blaszczykowski. The 29-year-old has failed to feature in the German club's first three games of the new season. He made a switch to Signal Iduna Park from Wisla Krakow in 2007 and has been a regular figure in the club's starting lineup, only for injuries in recent years to see his first team appearances being limited.
According to talkSPORT, lack of playing time has convinced the Polish international that his future lies away from the club. He is looking to leave his current employers before the transfer window shuts on 1 September.
Blaszczykowski's recent situation at Dortmund has put the Premier League trio of United, their arch-rivals Liverpool and the Gunners on alert. His contract with his current employers runs out in 2018.
The winger is earning £1.8 m ($2.8m) and is looking for a pay rise. German publication Bild claims Spanish clubs Real Betis and Sevilla are also after the player's signature before the end of the ongoing window.
The same report also suggests Blaszczykowski does not have any future under Dortmund's new manager Thomas Tuchel. His wage demands could see Betis end their interest in the player.
A possible loan move to either Betis or Sevilla could be on the cards, with Dortmund paying his salary. However, a permanent move will benefit both the player and the German side, which could see the La Liga outfits out of the race for his signature.
Louis van Gaal could make an approach for Dortmund winger after missing out on Spain internationl Pedro, who completed a move to Chelsea from Barcelona.
Meeting the player's wage demands will not be a trouble for United, considering the funds they have at their disposal. Any move from the Red Devils will see them face competition from Liverpool and Arsenal.
