Dortmund interested in Kiessling, says agent


German champions Borussia Dortmund have expressed an interest in signing striker Stefan Kiessling from rivals Bayer Leverkusen, his agent has revealed.

The 29-year-old, who won the last of his six caps for Germany at the 2010 World Cup, has scored 15 goals in 22 Bundesliga games this season and has a contract with Bayer until 2015.

"I have also heard interest from Dortmund," Kiessling's advisor Ali Bulut is quoted to have told several media outlets with German daily Bild reporting Ukraine club Dynamo Kiev are also interested in signing Kiessling.

Dortmund are on the look out for a new striker as chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted over the weekend they expect to lose top-scorer Robert Lewandowski, who has a contract until 2014, with Bayern Munich favourites to sign him.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bild: "I'm totally relaxed about the Lewandowski rumours.

"Bayern is not planning to conduct negotiations with Borussia Dortmund on a transfer," meaning they would sign the Poland star once his current contract expires in June 2014.
