Sahin and Klopp enjoyed some great times at Dortmund.

Sahin, 27, played on loan at Liverpool in 2012-13 but the arrival at Anfield of Jurgen Klopp, under whom the Turkey international played the best football of his career at Dortmund, has led to speculation that a reunion may be on the cards.

Fiorentina and Galatasaray have also been mentioned as potential suitors but Sahin, speaking after Turkey’s 2-0 victory over Czech Republic at Euro 2016, said he is not going anywhere.

“I am very happy at Dortmund,” Sahin told Sport360. “Yesterday it was Galatasaray, tomorrow it is Fiorentina – it’s normal of course in football to hear these things but I am very happy at Dortmund.

“I’m happy that I am healthy again. I will finish the Euros, and then my focus will be fully on Dortmund. I’m fit and I hope I can have a good pre-season.”

Asked if he admires the job his former boss has done at Liverpool so far, Sahin replied: “Am I impressed? Yes. But I am certainly not surprised.

Sahin will be linking up with Emre Mor at Dortmund next season following his transfer from FC Nordjaelland to BVB and he is excited by the potential of his new international and club teammate.

“He has some qualities in his game that we don’t have in our team at the moment,” Sahin said. “In the offensive positions, in one-on-one situations, he can dribble very fast and well. He is a very good player.”
