Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund are reportedly interested in teenager Gedion Zelalem of Arsenal.

Arsenal youngster and United States under-23 international Gedion Zelalem is wanted by Borussia Dortmund, sources close to the German club have told ESPN FC.

Zelalem, who was born in Germany and started his career at Hertha Berlin, has found it hard to make the breakthrough at Arsenal and Dortmund are monitoring his situation.

The 19-year-old joined Arsenal in 2013 after being spotted playing in America and he made his debut in January 2014 at the age of 16 in a FA Cup tie against Coventry, before going on to make his Champions League debut later that year.

He spent last season on loan at Scottish side Rangers, helping them win promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wanted him to gain valuable first-team experience.
