Julian Brandt is expected to join Borussia Dortmund if he decides to leave Bayer Leverkusen this summer, Sky Sports News understands.
Reports in Germany and the UK this week claimed Tottenham are among the clubs to have shown an interest in the attacking midfielder, while he has also previously been linked with Liverpool.
According to Sky in Germany, Brandt is set to stay at Leverkusen if they finish in the Champions League places, which they can still do if they better Borussia Monchengladbach's result on the final weekend of the season.
The 23-year-old, who still has two years left on his contract, would also consider staying at the club even if they finish in a Europa League place despite Dortmund's interest, Sky in Germany understands.
Brandt is one of Germany's brightest young talents, having already earned 24 senior caps for his country and scored two goals, and he reportedly has a release clause of just £21.5m.
