Liverpool target Shinji Kagawa is on the verge of signing a new deal at Borussia Dortmund despite interest from the Premier League.
The Japanese striker, 22, has scored eight goals for the Bundesliga side this season, helping them to the top of the table and that has drawn admiring glances from Liverpool and Manchester United, according to reports in Germany.
After scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Mainz at the weekend Kagawa said to German newspaper RevierSport: "We are now negotiating over the renewal of my contract.
"It's what interests me right now although I know that foreign clubs have asked about me. But I don't think it is the right time for me to leave this club."
