Borussia Dortmund are hoping that they are able to secure deals to sign Julian Brandt and Niklas Stark at the end of the season. 

According to Bild, via Sport Buzzer, Dortmund are plotting moves to sign the pair in the summer as they look to strengthen their squad. 

Dortmund recently dropped down into 2nd place in the Bundesliga table, behind Bayern on goal difference, and are now looking to address issues in their squad in the summer window.
