Borussia Dortmund are looking to secure Ilkay Gundogan to a new contract according to general manager Michael Zorc.

The 23-year old midfielder is under contract until 2015 but Dortmund insist they want to ward off any interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal and Manchester United by locking him in to a long-term stay.

"Of course, we are very interested in signing a new contract with Ilkay Gundogan," Zorc told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"Due to the injury that Ilkay Gundogan is out with at the moment, talks regarding a new deal have stalled, but we are keen to soon resume negotiations on a new contract."
