Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing Chelsea's Hakim Ziyech and Gladbach's Denis Zakaria in January, according to Bild.


Per the German tabloid, Dortmund have set their sights on Ziyech, who has been limited to just 10 appearances in the Premier League since his move to Chelsea from Ajax last summer.

Sport1, however, claims the attacking midfielder won't make the switch to Dortmund despite being offered to the club by his representatives.

Zakaria, meanwhile, is out contract at the end of the season, and Bild reports he would be allowed to leave for a fee around €8 million.

In order to make at least one of the two transfers possible, Dortmund first need to offload Real Madrid loanee Reinier, according to Bild, who claims the 19-year-old's loan deal could be terminated early.

Roman Bürki, who has fallen behind both Gregor Kobel and Marwin Hitz in the pecking order, is another player that could leave BVB next month.
