Ilkay Gundogan is a step closer to a Borussia Dortmund exit following the Bundesliga sides capture of Gonzalo Castro from Bayer Leverkusen.
BVB have signed Casto on a four-year deal from Leverkusen for €10 million.
“We’re delighted,” Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
“In Gonzalo Castro we’ve acquired an experienced, technically adept midfielder who can play in a number of positions.”
The transfer of Castro is a boost to both Arsenal and Manchester United who have been closely linked with the 24-year-old.
Gündoğan has four assists and three goals in 32 appearances for Dortmund despite spending much of the season out injured.
