The opportunity to become BVB boss has arisen because current head coach Jurgen Klopp has announced that he will be leaving the post at the end of the season. After winning the Bundesliga twice and guiding the team to a Champions League final, the 47-year-old has had to endure a poor campaign this time round. The German side was in the relegation zone for extended periods of time in the first half of the season.

Lambert is well liked at Dortmund, having helped them to win the Champions League as a player in 1997. He already spoken of his love for the Bundesliga side back in February, after being sacked by the Villains.

The 45-year-old would be a surprising choice for the role, having never managed outside of the UK and having an unsuccessful tenure at his last club. He has also never led high profile players similar to Marco Reus and Mats Hummels.
