The Bundesliga side are thought to be looking into boosting their attacking options as they continue to fight to restore themselves at the top of the tree both at home and in Europe, and are looking toward the 22-year-old as his contract with the Black Cats expires at the end of the current season.
Dortmund think that they can persuade the player to make the switch for a knockdown fee as he enters his final six months, and believe that they can use their name and recent success as bait to lure him to the Westfallenstadion.
Ji has made just four appearances in the Premier League this season, with his only start coming way back in August at the start of the season, and he may look to move on in order to save his spot in the South Korean squad at next summer’s World Cup.
Ji moved to Sunderland from Chunnam Dragons in 2011 and is best remembered for scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Manchester City in January 2012.
