Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has returned to training, handind the bumblebees a much needed boost ahead of their clash with Liverpool.
Gundogan has been sidelined with a foot injury since March 5, but will return for Jurgen Klopp’s return to the Signal Iduna Park.
Gundogan has been heavily linked to a move away from Dortmund at the end of this season, with incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reported to be keen on securing his signature.
Addressing the speculation last month, Tuchel said: “Am I convinced that he will stay put? I will only be convinced he will stay once he signs a new deal.
“Ilkay knows what Dortmund are all about. He knows that he can develop here and become one of the team’s leaders. He knows what he has at Dortmund.”
Captain Mats Hummels and fellow defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos also resumed training with Tuchel’s squad on Tuesday after sitting out Saturday’s 3-2 win over Werder Bremen.
