Borussia Dortmund are looking on the market for a substitute to midfielder Mkhitaryan, who will join José Mourinho's Manchester United. The German club have already seen some of their main players like Hümmels or Gündogan leave and they want to reinforce the squad's level. For now, they've brought in young talents like Marc Bartra, Moussa Dembélé or Raphaël Guerreiro and they are looking for a midfielder.

In that context the Arda Turan option comes into play. According to the Turkish medium sporx, Borussia see in the Blaugrana midfielder a good market oppotunity  and a footballer that would fit in the offensive system of Thomas Tuchel.

For now, Barça haven't planned selling Arda Turan and the club want to give a second opportunity to a footballer that cost 34 million Euros plus 7 more million euros in variables. However, if a good offer comes for the Turk and that there is a good replacement option (like André Gomes for example) the operation could not be ruled out.
