Borussia Dortmund have been heavily linked with a swoop for Juventus' Emre Can this month, with reports from Italy claiming that the midfielder could potentially complete a move to Signal Iduna Park this week.

However, Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insists that nothing has been agreed at this point.

"Nothing is decided or definite yet," Zorc said in an interview with Kicker.

"I don't think we absolutely have to do more in regard to transfers. But we are of course watching the market closely and are looking at where we can perhaps improve," the BVB boss told Ruhr Nachrichten.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici said on Sunday that Can will be allowed to leave if it's possible to reach an agreement that will suit all parties.

"Emre Can is an important player, we'll be happy if he remains, but if we find a solution that suits everyone concerned, then he can take that step," Paratici said on Sunday, according to Forbes.

"He has a lot of suitors all over Europe, seeing as he is one of the best midfielders on the continent, so that is only natural," he added.

According to reports, Tottenham, Manchester United and Bayern München are also interested in Emre Can.

Bayern coach Hansi Flick recently spoke very positively about the German international.

"I have known Emre for a long time. He's a top professional who has had an outstanding career. You have to say that things aren't going too well for him at the moment. But he's a leader who would strengthen every team," Flick told reporters.

Can, 26, has played just eight games for Juventus this season.
