The 26-year-old, who has already played for European giants Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Juventus, also discussed his targets with Dortmund ahead of the Bundesliga's restart on 16 May.

"We are still playing against Bayern and in Leipzig. So, we still have the direct competitors ahead of us," he added.

"We have to win these games, then anything is possible!"

Dortmund will host their bitter rivals Schalke 04 in the Ruhr derby when German football resumes on 16 May.
