Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United have also been linked with the 29-year-old but Zorc has made it clear that Dortmund do not want to sell.

"We're planning very clearly with Papa," he said, as quoted by Kicker.

"We don't want to give away players of this quality."

Sokratis made 41 appearances in all competitions last season for the DFB-Pokal winners.
