It has been reported that the Premier League is appearing the most likely destination for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
Sport 1 says the prospect of Bayern Munich stepping in for Gundogan is a non-starter.
Bayern chiefs have no interest in moving for the Germany international, who will be sold by BVB this summer.
Instead, a switch abroad is now a certainty, with Gundogan on the shopping list of clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
The midfielder’s deal with BVB runs to 2016.
