The Polish international suffered the crippling injury during his side’s 2-2 draw with Augsburg at the weekend and is now set to miss the rest of the season as he recovers.

And now Dortmund managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke has admitted that the side will dip into the transfer market this week in order to bring in a player to cover their club captain until he’s back on his feet.

According to source in Germany, Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp will now look to step up his interest in Gnabry by putting together a lucrative deal to bring the winger back home.

Klopp had originally been looking to the 18-year-old as an eventual replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who is leaving the club to join rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

However, news of Blaszczykowski’s injury coupled with Ilkay Gundogan’s prolonged absence with a back problem has forced Klopp to rethink his transfer strategy by making a move for the Arsenal starlet now instead of in the summer.
