Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes has dismissed speculation linking the club with Mario Götze.


Sport 1 reported on Wednesday that Leverkusen are looking into the possibility of signing the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, but Rolfes denies any interest in the 27-year-old.

"Mario Götze is a good player, with whom I played in the national team. But he's not a topic for us," Rolfes told Bild.

Götze is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer.
