Borussia Dortmund attacker Kevin Grosskreutz has revealed he is still eager to make a "dream" move to the Premier League amidst rumoured interest from Liverpool.

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 following the arrival of Marco Reus and the continuing form of Jakub Błaszczykowski, Grosskreutz has conceded he is restless at the club.

He told "Of course I'm not happy. Whoever is happy if 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 that Liverpool could be set to offer Grosskreutz a January lifeline, but the midfielder remains relaxed about a move he admits he has been eyeing for some time.

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

"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 is the first club to talk to."
