Egypt and Dortmund striker Mohamed Zidan is currently in talks with several clubs to seal a move before the end of the transfer window next week, but only if teammate Lucas Barrios doesn’t leave the Bundesliga champions.

“I am very frustrated and I want to leave as soon as possible. I have three offers on the table but I need to consider my options,” the 30-yearold Zidan told Germany's Bild magazine.

Zidan has been relegated to the bench since a knee injury in 2010 and has failed to bounce back in Dortmund’s since then. The Pharaohs striker has been linked with a move back to former club Mainz who is fighting to stay in the top flight.

However, he won’t be allowed to leave if Barrios – who is reportedly on the move – departs the club, as Coach Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to be short on strikers.
