Grosskreutz open to Premier League swap

Kevin Grosskreutz says a 'dream' move to the English Premier League remains a possibility, but Borussia Dortmund still come first.

The 24-year-old scored seven goals in 26 league starts last term as Jurgen Klopp's men lifted the Bundesliga title ahead of Bayern Munich.

But, having seen his first-team action restricted this term due to the form of Jakub Blaszczykowski, Grosskreutz has conceded he is restless at his hometown club.

He was quoted as saying: "Of course I'm not happy. Whoever is happy when he doesn't play is in the wrong business. I'm totally unhappy. I want to play, that's all that counts for me."

Recent reports suggest Liverpool could be set to move for Grosskreutz in January, but despite his lack of playing time, the wide midfielder is in no rush to leave the Westfalenstadion.

"I have one-and-a-half year left. I'm taking it easy. We will see," he said.

"The dream was there three, four years ago - it was always my dream. But I do have a contract with Borussia Dortmund. Everything's possible in football but Dortmund are the first club to talk to."
