Liverpool have been linked with the goalscoring midfielder several times over the last year, and Kagawa - who confirmed recently that he was in negotiations to extend his contract - can leave the Bundesliga club for free in 2013.
Sporting Director Michael Zorc told Bild last week that the 23-year-old is 'flirting with clubs in England and Spain'. Kagawa also admitted that he knew that foreign clubs had 'asked about' him but insisted that he didn't think it was 'the right time' to leave Germany'.
Things may have changed after Dortmund's recent Bundesliga win though. According to Kicker magazine, the German club has given Kagawa till the end of the month to sign a new deal, with Zorc claiming:
"It's about planning for the future of the club. Other positions are involved too. We need security"
Dortmund Manager, Jurgen Klopp, added:
"If Shinji leaves, life goes on. After all, it's not like we had planned on playing an identical line-up for the next 25 years."
The €15m-rated attacking midfielder - dubiously dubbed the 'Asian Messi' by some - has grabbed 16 goals and 7 assists for Dortmund this season, improving on his tally of 12 goals last season.
What do yo think? Should Liverpool pursue Kagawa? Would he settle into the Premier League?
