Borussia Dortmund are moving for Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby.

The Daily Mail says Jurgen Klopp has emerged as favourite to land Lewis Holtby for around £5million after telling his Borussia Dortmund bosses to make a bid for the unsettled Tottenham midfielder before the January window shuts.

Holtby's former club Schalke were thought to be in pole position to try and revive his faltering fortunes, while PSV Eindhoven were also considering an approach.

But Klopp has made a move himself for Holtby with BVB's campaign lurching to disaster, with Champions League qualification already almost out of reach.
