Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a big fan of the midfielder, and hopes that the two sides can reach an agreement ahead of the summer transfer window.

The recent revelation that Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp will leave the club at the end of the season has made many players uncertain over their future, with the likes of Marco Reus and Mats Hummels also rumoured to follow their manager out of the Westfalenstadion.
