The Bundesliga side had sought to rule out any kind of sale for the striker earlier on in the month after speculation had linked the likes of PSV Eindhoven, FC Twente, Everton, Stoke and Newcastle with his services.
However, things haven’t been going smoothly for the 23-year-old this season as he has not started a match for Gladbach in their previous 13 games.
And with his World Cup hopes with the Dutch national side now hanging by a thread, it appears as though the club will be willing to open themselves up to enquiries for the player in the new year.
“If an interesting offer comes in for either of them, then we will look into it and consider alternatives,” Eberl said.
“Of course I can understand that Luuk and Peniel had other expectations for this season, which is perfectly legitimate.
“But our priority has got to be the best for Borussia and we can only play a strong second half of the season if we’ve got a well-balanced squad.”
