Borussia Dortmund are reportedly preparing for Henrikh Mkhitaryan's move to Manchester United by sounding out Wolfsburg's Andre Schurrle. The German international is currently away on international duty at Euro 2016, but the Bundesliga giants are said to be keen on signing him this summer.
Schurrle, who has also played in the Premier League with Chelsea, is said to have already held a conversation with Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel about a possible move to the club. Schurrle has, however, refused to confirm or deny if that conversation took place when he was recently asked about it.
"The fact that Thomas Tuchel has phoned me, I will not comment further. We are now at the European Championships, and I'm focusing on it," he said during a press conference, according to Bild.
The ex-Chelsea man is being lined up as a potential replacement for Dortmund's Armenian attacker Mkhitaryan, who is said to be on the cusp of completing a €40m ($44.2m, £33.1m) move to United. Mkhitaryan is known to be keen on a switch to Old Trafford, and a deal for Schurrle could help to accelerate the process.
United have already signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal this summer, but Jose Mourinho, the club's new manager, is thought to be in the market for more players in the coming weeks. In addition to Mkhitaryan, United have also been linked with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.
